Is there a self exam for Testicular Cancer? How do I check for testicular cancer?

Feel your Testes

Testicular_cancer
Do a self exam. If you feel a lump, hardness, enlargement, pain, or any other change in one or both of their testicles, you should visit your doctor immediately.

Dr. Edward Druy answered:

What are symptoms of testicular cancer and how would you self check yourself for any symtons?

Self exam

Testicular_cancer
You can examine your testicles by lightly running your fingers over each one. If you begin to feel a lump or a swollen testicle you should see a urologist who will examen your testicles carefully and may refer you for an ultrasound examination.

Dr. Ed Friedlander answered:

How do I check for testicular cancer?

It's easy

Epididymis
Palpate your testes / "testicles". Get familiar with the contents of your scrotum, finding the epididymis and spermatic cord and the plexus of veins. Any other mass on the testis needs to be checked. Most of us men handle ourselves often enough so that we need not plan special times! That's a good thing.

2 testicles, one on each side of the scrotum, located behnd yur penis. Isolate each testicle and rub your finger from top to bottom, front and back, each side. Usually there is a lump and a tube in the back called a an epididymus--normal. Compare sides, should be similar. Repeat monthly. Questions? see your doc.

How does a doctor check whether a man has testicular cancer?

Starts with

78327805
...a physical exam, looking for testicular lumps. Ultrasound and certain blood tests (tumor markers like AFP and Beta HCG) can be of help. If there is enough concern, a urologist removes the testicle. Testicular biopsy with a needle is not advised.

Dr. Kris Gast answered:

Is there a self-test for testicular cancer?

Testicular cancer

Cancer
The self test you are looking for is called a physical exam! Basically you must be familiar with your own body in order to notice any changes. Men are really supposed to exam their testicles once a month just as women are asked to exam their breasts once a month. Just pick a day of the month and get it done. If you feel a knot or lump see your doctor.

Dr. Joseph Accurso answered:

I have sometimes pain in my perineum and testicles. also have some pain when doing testicular self exam. Can it be testicular cancer?

See your doctor

Testicular_cancer
Usually, cancer does not present as pain, but infection or inflammation can. Either way, please see your doctor and get a complete examination, to possibly include urinary analysis and if appropriate, testicular ultrasound.

Dr. Amy Levine answered:

When checking for testicular cancer, is it still a concern when there are lumps on the "tubes" leading from testicle to the body?

Maybe

Testicular_cancer
It's hard to say without doing an exam. You may be just noticing normal structures, but varicose veins can frequently occur in this region (varicocoeles). This may also need an ultrasound if your doctor thinks it's needed. BTW, kudos on doing self exams!
