1 Cup one testicle at a time using both hands. Best performed during or after a warm bath or shower.
2 Examine by rolling the testicle between thumb and finger using slight pressure.
3 Familiarise yourself with the spermatic cord and epididymis tube-like structures that connect on the back side of each testicle.
4 Feel for lumps, change in size or irregularities. It is normal for one testis to be larger than the other.
Remember it is important to check on a regular basis.
It’s not a load of balls!
