Dr Chris Steele shows to examine men testicles for cancer on This Morning.
Dr Steele says: “Testicular cancer is still rare, but 96% of patients are successful in beating the disease. Early detection through self-exam is the root of an incredible survival rate. Doctors recommend that men should perform self-exams at least one a month preferable after a hot bath or shower.”
The symptoms for testicular cancer can be summarised as:
Lump or swelling in testicle,
Dull ache or sharp pain in testicles or scrotum, which may come and go,
Feeling of heaviness in scrotum,
Sudden collection of fluid in scrotum,
General feeling of being unwell.
He recommends that you speak to your GP as soon as possible if you experience and of these symptoms because earlier diagnosis is key to a full recovery.
