Testicular cancer is the most common cancer in young men
check your nuts!
One of the main focuses of the Movember foundation is the research, treatments, and teaching of testicular cancer. Although it is highly treatable, it can still affect anyone, which is why it's important to learn the steps for checking your testicles yourself.
Step 1: STEAM
Warm up in a steamy shower. This relaxes and loosens your nuts, getting them ready to be checked.
STEP 2: ROLL
With your thumb and finger, roll one testicle to get to know what’s normal for you. Check for any changes or anything painful.
STEP 3: REPEAT
Now repeat with the other nut.
What to look for during a self-check
Your nuts should feel smooth and firm. Sensitive, but not painful. Get familiar with them so you have a baseline. Then look for unusual changes over time. Stuff like swelling, a lump on your testicle or changes in size, shape or consistency. It’s important to note that unusual swelling or soreness doesn’t automatically mean something's wrong.
Signs and symptoms of testicular cancer
Common signs and symptoms of testicular cancer include a hard lump on your testicle or unusual soreness. Other testicular cancer symptoms can include the feeling of heaviness in your scrotum (nut sack) or a dull ache or ongoing pain in your testicles, groin or lower back.
