Worried About Testicular Cancer?

Don't fumble around in the dark ask an expert for advice


If you find a lump or swelling in your testicles, or identify any of the signs below it’s important to get it checked out by your doctor. Not all lumps are cancer so it’s better to ask an expert to put your mind at rest than ignore it.


There are no hard and fast rules about how often you should be checking; the most important thing is to check yourself regularly so that you know your own body, and if you find something unusual act fast.


The early signs of testicular cancer are often easy to spot. Look out for one or more of the following:


  • a hard lump on the front or side of a testicle
  • swelling or enlargement of a testicle
  • an increase in firmness of a testicle
  • pain or discomfort in a testicle or in the scrotum (the sac that holds the testicles)
  • an unusual difference between one testicle and the other


Remember, Always Be Checking and if in doubt get it checked out!
