How to Perform a Testicular Cancer Self-Exam

Men between the ages of 15 and 35 can increase their chances of finding testicular cancer early by performing monthly testicular self-exam. Ideally, the testicular cancer self-exam should be performed after a warm bath or shower. The heat causes the scrotal skin to relax, making it easier to feel anything unusual on the testicle.

Self-Exam Guide:


  • Examine each testicle gently with both hands. The index and middle fingers should be placed underneath the testicle with the thumbs placed on top. Roll the testicle gently between the thumbs and fingers. One testicle may be slightly larger than the other. This is normal.
  • The epididymis is a cord-like structure on the top and back of the testicles that stores and transports sperm. Do not confuse the epididymis with an abnormal lump.
  • Feel for any abnormal lumps - about the size of a pea - on the front or side of the testicle. These lumps are usually painless.

    If you do find a lump, contact your doctor right away. The lump may be due to an infection, and a doctor can decide the proper treatment. If the lump is not an infection, it is likely to be testicular cancer. Remember that testicular cancer is highly curable, especially when detected and treated early.

    While routine testicular self-examination is important, it cannot substitute for a doctor's examination. Your doctor should examine your testicles when you have a physical examination. You can also ask your doctor to check the way you do testicular self-exam.

    It's important not to let fear or embarrassment keep you from not checking yourself on a regular basis, or contacting the doctor if you notice anything unusual. Remember, if testicular-cancer is caught early, chances of survival are great. It's your life you're dealing with, don't let embarrassment or shyness stop you checking. Make sure that you regularly perform testicular cancer self-exams.
