You don’t need permission to check ‘em™ regularly. In fact, it could save your life. Testicular cancer is the most prevalent cancer in men aged 15 to 29, but it’s also among the most treatable when caught early.
So learn to check ‘em out at least once a month The more familiar you are with their normal shape and size, the earlier you will be able to detect an abnormality. This section explains how to do this self-examination.

Check your testicles just after you've had a bath or shower, when the muscles in the scrotum are relaxed, making it easier for you to feel any lumps, growths or tenderness. Stand in front of the mirror. Look for any swelling on the skin of your scrotum.
Hold your scrotum in your hands and feel the size and weight of each testicle. It is common for one testicle to be slightly larger or hang lower than the other.
Feel each testicle and roll it between your thumb and finger. It should feel smooth. It's normal to feel a soft, tender tube towards the back of each testicle. You shouldn't feel any pain when checking your testicles.
