Testicular Exams Omitted During Many Physicals

Kahoonas, balls, nuts: When was the last time ‘the boys’ were examined?

According to findings presented at the American Urological Association 2012 annual meeting, more than one-fourth of adolescent and adult males between 15-45   have not had a testicular exam during a routine physical in the past twelve months. That’s not good: men in this age bracket are at the highest risk of testicular cancer.

Common symptoms of testicular cancer include:

  • Discomfort or pain in the testicle
  • Pain in the back or lower abdomen
  • Enlargement of a testicle
  • Lump or swelling in the testicle
  • A feeling of heaviness in the scrotum

Testicular cancer is one of the most treatable and curable cancers — when caught early. See a physician if you have one of the aforementioned symptoms and don’t forget to perform self-exams. Seriously.
