The testes hang ‘outside’ in the scrotum because sperm production needs a cooler temperature than the inside of the body. Because the testes are outside the main body cavity they are more vulnerable to injury, but also it is easier for a man to discover lumps or bumps. Testes are responsible for the production of sperm and male hormones called testosterone.
Men experiencing unexplained or ongoing pain, or noticing lumps or changes in their testes are advised to see a testicular pain doctor nearby. IASH Jaipur has the best testicular pain specialist in India.
Testicular cancer has a very good cure rate. To help find testicular cancer early, it is recommended that young men check their testis regularly for any lumps or swellings, and if concerned, see nearest doctor for testis straight away.
Always keep two things in mind when doing testicular self examination:
A testicular self-examination (TSE) is a quick and simple process which may be easier after a warm bath or shower when the skin of the scrotum is relaxed. A testicular self-examination involves feeling the testes, one at a time, using the fingers and thumb, and should only take a few minutes.
Using the palm of your hand, support your scrotum. Gently roll one testis between the thumb and fingers to feel for any lumps or swellings in or on the surface of the testis. Repeat with the other testis. The testes should feel firm and the surface should feel smooth.
Using the thumb and fingers, feel along the epididymis at the back of the testis. The epididymis is a soft, highly coiled tube that carries sperm from the testis to the vas deferens.
Check for any lumps, bumps or unusual features.
Make note of any changes in size over time. While the most common symptom of testicular cancer is a painless mass, some men experience swelling of the testicles and scrotum.
Be aware of any dull soreness or heaviness.
