The Guy at Home in His Underwear

via Canada

Watch the guy live. Learn more about your boys, and how to keep them healthy.

Testicular cancer is a disease in which cells become malignant in one or both of your testicles.

There is no single known cause of testicular cancer but some factors seem to increase the risk. These include:

- delayed descent of the testicles

- age (particularly between 15 and 49)

- family or personal history of testicular cancer

- abnormal development of the testicle

However, it’s important to remember that some guys develop testicular cancer without having any of these risk factors.

The best way to protect yourself is to check your boys on a regular basis.

All guys, from the age of 15 years, should be aware and know how their testicles normally look and feel. Knowing what is normal and reporting any changes to your doctor may help find cancer earlier. And early detection of testicular cancer can make a world of difference in the treatment of the disease. The best time to check your boys is 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.

See your doctor if:

You notice a lump on the testicle, a painful testicle, a feeling of heaviness or dragging in the lower abdomen or scrotum, or a dull ache in the lower abdomen and groin.

But remember, having these symptoms doesn’t mean you have testicular cancer as other health problems can cause some of the same symptoms. Seeing your doctor is the best way to figure out what’s causing these changes.

In addition to checking yourself, make sure you have regular medical checkups with your doctor that include a testicular examination.

And we know you love this video of hot rugby players examining themselves - take another look and go practice. You may have to watch multiple times to get the hang of it.
