Testicular Self-Exam

Testicular cancer is the most common cancer in young men. You are at highest risk if your testicles did not descend into the scrotum or it they descended after age 6. Young men should preform testicular self-exams monthly, after a warm shower or bath. The most common symptom of testicular cancer is a small, painless lump in a testicle or a slightly enlarged testicle.
