sign of testicular cancer One of the first signs of testicular cancer is often a lump or swelling in the testes. The U.S. Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) recommends against routine screening for testicular cancer in asymptomatic adolescent and adults including routine testicular self-exams.

123. Public Awareness of Testis Cancer and the Prevalence of Testicular Self-examination-Changing Patterns Over 20 Years. (Abstract)

Public Awareness of Testis Cancer and the Prevalence of Testicular Self-examination-Changing Patterns Over 20 Years. Delay in treatment of testis cancer (TC) has a proven negative impact on disease stage, treatment outcome, and mortality. Poor public awareness of the disease and lack of testis self-examination (TSE) may account for late presentation. The aim of this study was to examine the knowledge of TC and performance of TSE in a group of men over 2 time periods 20 years apart.In (...) TSE. Limitations included possible selection bias in the 2 studies conducted in a banking institution.Increased testicular cancer knowledge combined with TSE may have a role in improving detection of significant testicular pathology.Copyright © 2010 Elsevier Inc.
