A typical man highly regards his penis and is protective of it. Maybe that’s why he’s grabbing it, repositioning it and playing with it all the time! Like it’s a puppy that he keeps in his pants…or something! Anyway…
He must take care to pay more than just superficial attention to his revered member. The American Cancer Society recommends men check themselves early detection of possible testicular cancer. There is no prescribed frequency for doing so. We’ll recommend you consider doing it monthly.
Once a month, after taking a bath or shower:
- Examine each testicle individually.
- With both hands, hold the testicle between your thumbs and fingers and roll it gently.
- Be on the alert for any hard lumps or nodules (smooth rounded masses) or any change in the size, shape or consistency of your testes.
- Do not mistake the epididymis (a tightly coiled tube on the upper, outer side of each testicle) or the blood vessels and spermatic cord that extend from the testicles as being cancer.
