How to Check for Cancer
The lifetime odds of a man getting testicular cancer are around 1 in 270. It most often occurs in young and middle-aged men and treatment is usually very successful. The odds of treating testicular cancer successfully are best if it's caught early, so men should be diligent about checking themselves. "While they're in the shower and washing themselves up, they should feel around and make sure they don't feel any hard bumps," says Smith. He advises a check at least once a month. Any lumps or changes in size or shape should be reported to your doctor.
