Every hour a male is diagnosed with testicular cancer, and every day a life is lost. This cancer forms in the testicles and almost always start in the germ cells. It is a highly treatable and often curable form of cancer, according to the National Cancer Institute (NCI). The five-year survival rate for men diagnosed with testicular cancer is about 95 percent, but EARLY detection is KEY!
Many doctors recommend men between the ages of 15 and 55 perform monthly testicular self-exams, particularly after a warm shower. Below is a diagram on how to perform a self-exam.
