Any testicular lumps should ALWAYS be checked out by a doctor AS SOON AS POSSIBLE!
1. Take a bath or shower to make your body warm. Your balls will hang lower, making it easier to check yourself.
2. Using both hands, roll one testicle between fingers and thumb, feeling for any lumps and bumps. Make sure to cover the ENTIRE ball.
3. Repeat the process with the other testicle: use both hands to roll it between fingers and thumb, feeling for any lumps and bumps. Make sure to cover the ENTIRE ball.
If you can't feel anything unusual, GREAT! Just remember to check again every month in the exact same way.
If you do find a new lump, a hard area, or notice a difference, tell a responsible adult and make sure you see a doctor very soon.
While checking your balls you might find something else that concerns you. If you find any of these things, tell a responsible adult and get seen by a doctor
With regular checking at least once a month, you can feel any changes or differences more easily. This is why it is important to KNOW YOUR BALLS.
If you get testicular pain, along with these symptoms, don't be afraid to take action.
It could SAVE your ball!!!!
Although talking about your balls may seem awkward for you,
most adults will be a lot more relaxed about discussing it than you are.
If you want to be 100% safe, always let a doctor examine your balls.
