Testicular Self-Exam

Testicular Self-Exam Introduction

Patient Comments

A testicular self-examination (TSE) is useful in the detection of cancer of the testicles. Testicular cancer is the most common solid tumor found in males age 20-34 years. If detected early and treated, testicular cancer is almost 100% curable. If untreated, it may spread to the lymph nodes and lungs, and become more dangerous. Tumors usually are found on one side, but 2%-3% are found in both testicles.
