What to Watch For
Because testicular cancer is so common, especially in younger men, you might not know what symptoms to watch out for. Here’s a basic look at common testicular cancer symptoms:
- Lump in either testicle
- Pain in the scrotum
- Heaviness in the scrotum
- Ache in the abdomen or groin
By conducting regular self-examinations, you can find issues before they become more serious. After a hot bath or shower is the best time to do a self-exam because the skin is more relaxed and you can more easily feel any issues.
When to Contact a Doctor
If you notice any changes to the scrotum or testicles, contact your doctor. While not every lump or swelling is caused by cancer, it’s always good to rule out any problems and get things checked out as soon as you can.
