Testicular Cancer – Prevention

There are no proven ways to prevent testicular cancer. But the following steps may increase the possibility of finding early-stage testicular cancer when it is most likely to be curable.

* Perform regular testicular self-exams. Most cases of testicular cancer are discovered during a self-exam or during a routine physical done by a doctor.
* Be aware of any pain or discomfort in your scrotum, pelvis, or lower back. If you have any discomfort in these areas, see your doctor as soon as possible.
