April is a special month for men’s health as it is recognized as Testicular Cancer Awareness Month. Testicular cancer is a relatively rare but highly treatable form of cancer that affects men of all ages. With early detection and treatment, the prognosis for testicular cancer is very positive, making awareness and education about the disease critical.
Throughout April, healthcare organizations and advocacy groups work to raise awareness of testicular cancer, its symptoms, and the importance of early detection and treatment.
We’ve teamed up with My Oddballs, to bring you a comprehensive guide to self-examination for testicular cancer. Below, you will find the steps of how to check your testicles for any lumps or abnormalities, and provide information on what to look out for.
