Testicular Cancer: What Are The Signs And How You Can Check

How Do You Check For Testicular Cancer? 

Because we feel that it isn't spoken enough about, we're concentrating on testicular cancer. It is critical that we are all aware of issues that affect our ur or another, regardless of gender, so that we can recognise signs and know when to seek treatment.

How common is testicular cancer?

Testicular cancer is the most frequent malignancy in men aged 15 to 44, with approximately 2000 persons diagnosed each year in the United Kingdom alone. Although testicular cancer is uncommon before puberty, it affects about half of all guys under the age of 35, and the majority of people don't know how to check their genitals or don't do so on a regular basis.

How to check for testicular cancer yourself

The UK men’s health charity Movember recommends that you examine your testicles about once a month to notice any changes. They advise a ‘steam, roll, repeat’ method:

Steam - a warm bath or shower will help everything relax and ensure that the testicle is low in the scrotum so you can check it!

Roll - roll the testis (ball) between your thumb and fingers, feel all around for any lumps, bumps, or painful or tender areas.

Repeat - on the other side!

Your testicles, like you, are one-of-a-kind! It is critical that you learn to recognise what is usual for you so that you can recognise when something changes. If something feels strange or you have any concerns during your testicular cancer check, please consult your doctor. As with other malignancies, timing is crucial, and the sooner you get a diagnosis, the more likely you are to have a successful treatment and make a full recovery. Your doctor may order an ultrasound and recommend you to a specialist.

What is the treatment for testicular cancer?

Testicular cancer is usually treated with surgery to remove the testicle on that side. The removal of one testicle has no effect on your testosterone levels, your capacity to acquire or sustain an erection, or your ability to experience orgasms, have an active sex life, or your fertility. If the cancer has spread, you may be prescribed chemotherapy or radiotherapy, both of which can interfere with fertility. The good news is that males with testicular cancer have a 95 percent five-year survival rate, which means that over 9 out of 10 persons are impacted.
