Testicle Self-Examination

A how-to guide

(HealthDayNews) -- Testicular tumors are among the more common cancers occurring in men under 40. Seton Hall University in New Jersey advises men to conduct regular self-examinations. Here's how:

  • Support the testicles in one hand and feel each with the other hand.
  • Gently roll each testicle between the thumb and the fingers. You'll feel a smooth tubular structure that covers the top, back and bottom of each testicle.
  • With your finger, delicately separate this tube from the testicle to examine the testicle itself.
  • Feel for any swelling or lumps.
  • If you detect anything unusual, see your doctor without delay.
