The purpose of screening is to find and treat diseases early. They are given to people who may be at high risk, but who don’t have problems.

Screening Guidelines

There are no standard tests for testicular cancer screening. If you're aged 20 years and older, your testicles should be check during a routine physical exam. If you're at high risk, your doctor may have you do self-exams once a month. This way, you can keep track of any changes. If you have any changes, or you notice a lump or swelling, call your doctor right away.
