Men: Examining your testicles

04 September 2016, 09:25 Nakhu mix

Nairobi - Every man over the age of 14 needs a monthly self-examination of the testicles.

This familiarizes one with his body and also enables the detection of testicular cancer at an early age. It is recommended that it be done monthly to make sure that nothing changes. The testicular self examination is best performed after a warm bath or shower.

This is because heat relaxes the scrotum, making it easier to spot anything abnormal. Stand in front of a mirror. Check for any swelling of the scrotal skin. Examine each testicle with both hands. Place the index and middle fingers under the testicles with the thumb on top.

Gently roll the testicle between the thumbs and fingers. You shouldn't feel any pain. Do not be alarmed if one testicle seems slightly larger; that's normal.

Find the epididymis. This is the soft tube-like structure behind the testicle that collects and carries sperm. Do not mistake this for a suspicious lump.

If you find a lump on your testicle, see a doctor; preferably a urologist right away.
