5 Signs of Testicular Cancer Most Men Are Too Embarrassed To Talk About (and 5 Signs it Has Spread)

Although testicular cancer is becoming more common health problem, most people still do not want to talk about this topic, mainly due to embarrassment. But, we have decided to break the “taboo” because it is very important for every man to know more about this disease.

It is estimated that about 8,720 men in the United States will be diagnosed with testicular cancer in 2016. The average age of diagnosis is only 33. Usually, the first sign of testicular cancer is a change in the size or shape of one or both testicles. In most cases, this change doesn’t cause pain.

Most health professionals recommend that men between the age of 15 and 40 should regularly perform a testicular self-examination. The self-check will lead to early detection, and it is especially important for everyone who has undescended testicles or family history of testicular cancer.

Here is how you can do a self-exam: Hold your manho0d out of the way and check each ball one at a time. Place it between your fingers ang thumbs of both hand and roll it between fingers. Check if there are bumps or lumps or changes in the size.

The number of men suffering from this kind of cancer is rampantly increasing that is why men should not ignore these following signs:

1. There is a lump in your testicles.
2. The feeling that your scrotum is getting heavier
3. Feeling pain or pressure in the lower belly or groin
4. There are instances that chests grow and it sores

Testicular cancer is probably the most curable form of cancer, especially if it is detected in its early stages. We recommend you to perform self-exam once a month. If you feel like there is something unusual, you should consult with a doctor immediately.
