“So if there is a purpose to the suffering that is cancer, I think it must be this: it's meant to improve us.”
The Testicles produce sperm and testosterone. Contained within an extension of the abdomen called the Scrotum, men have two Testicles. They are the organ that defines the male characteristics.
Testicular Cancer develops most frequently in males aged from 15 to 40 years old. Testicular Cancer has one of the highest cure rates of all Cancer, more than 90% if caught early. Consulting a GP is recommended if there is pain and tenderness in the Testicles. Other signs are a build-up of fluid in the Scrotum, a dull ache in the lower abdomen or groin, a change in the size of one of the Testicles or blood in Semen.
Cradle your Scrotum and Testicles in the palm of one hand and feel the difference between the Testicles. One hangs lower; this is entirely normal. Now the significant bit, feeling for any lumps or bumps. Use both hands and gently roll each Testicle between thumb and forefinger. Check for any lumps, bumps or swellings, as both Testicles should be smooth. Note: the Epididymis is a tube that connects each Testicle to the Vas Deferens and is the first part of the road Sperm use to travel, this may feel lumpy, but it is perfectly normal.
