141. Floating Balls Appearance in Testicular Cystic Teratoma. (Abstract)

Floating Balls Appearance in Testicular Cystic Teratoma. Fourteen cases of a "floating balls" appearance on imaging studies in a mature ovarian cystic teratoma have been reported in published studies since 1991. Past investigators could not provide an explanation for the true mechanism of the formation of the balls. However, the floating balls occurred in rather large cysts. Because of self-examination, patients with testicular teratoma are usually referred to the hospital when the tumor (...) is of a smaller size than that seen in patients with ovarian teratoma. We report the first case of a floating balls appearance in a testicular teratoma.

, and 1-197 months (median, 99 mo) for azoospermia. We subsequently found three testicular cancers that had developed among severely oligozoospermic and azoospermic patients. The period from the claim of sterility to developing testicular cancers varied from 4 to 14 years (median, 9 y).These results indicate that severe semen abnormality may be a risk factor in developing testicular cancers. Self-examination of the testes could be used as an alternative or supplement to physical examination (...)

than 6 echogenic signals found on ultrasound. We identified 84 patients with testicular microlithiasis (5.6%). These men were entered into the followup phase of the study and instructed regarding testicular self-examination and the need for followup. They were told to report any changes in their examination or a finding of testicular mass or cancer. Five years after the initial screening study we attempted to contact all remaining 84 men by e-mail, standard mail and telephone.Of the original 84 men (...) %) during a 5-year followup interval. We believe that an intensive screening program for men with testicular microlithiasis is not cost-effective and would do little to improve outcomes associated with testicular cancer. We continue to recommend testicular self-examination in men at risk.

The data lends support to the effectiveness of national health education initiatives aimed at increasing public awareness and self-examination. GPs performed well in this study, assessing and referring men appropriately and urgently into secondary care. (...) Delay in the diagnosis of testicular tumours - changes over the past 18 years. Delay in the diagnosis of testicular cancer is associated with greater morbidity and poorer prognosis. While the national agenda relates to reducing time to referral and diagnostic delay, delay in presentation has previously been recognised as a major cause of delay in the diagnosis of this patient group.To evaluate changes in referral times and patient awareness among men with testicular cancer in Yorkshire over

146. Testicular cancer awareness and self-examination among adolescent males in a community-based youth organization. (Abstract)

Testicular cancer awareness and self-examination among adolescent males in a community-based youth organization. Testicular cancer (TC) is the most common neoplasm affecting males between 15 and 35, and testicular self-examination (TSE) has been recommended for early detection. Studies have found that young adult men have poor awareness of TC and low rates of performing TSE, but little research has examined adolescents.In a comprehensive survey of health behaviors among adolescent boys (n = 213

149. Testicular self-examination: a public awareness program. Full Text available with Trip Pro

Testicular self-examination: a public awareness program. Testicular cancer is responsible for one out of seven deaths among late adolescent and young adult males. It is the number one cancer killer of men in the second and third decade of life. However, the population at risk, men between the ages 15 and 35, is singularly unaware of this cancer's existence and its potential danger. A public awareness program has been designed to increase consciousness about this possibly fatal disease (...) and to enhance early detection and cure through a program of testicular self-examination (TSE). This proposal incorporates intervention at local, State, and national levels. It contemplates an innovative campaign beginning at the local level, focusing on the target population and utilizing a collaboration between nonprofessionals and professionals. The aim is for a grass-roots beginning and continued public interest to culminate in a national campaign, similar to that of breast self-examination. The ultimate

Testicular Self-Examination: Are Primary Care Physicians Teaching This Preventive Measure? The author polled 118 family physicians about their screening procedures for testicular cancer in males at risk. Fewer physicians (63%) teach testicular self-examination (TSE) than teach breast self-examination (100%) as part of a periodic health examination. Physicians who examine their own testes or breasts regularly are more likely to examine their patients' testes during a periodic examination

Evaluation of two health education strategies for testicular self-examination. We evaluated the effects of two health education teaching methods, a pamphlet based on a task-analyzed checklist and two professionally developed films, on the completeness, accuracy, and maintenance of testicular self-examinations (TSE). Subjects (N = 48) were videotaped while performing a TSE after training and at a follow-up visit. Direct observation of the tapes showed that checklist-based training resulted (...) on morbidity and mortality of testicular cancer.

155. Encouraging young males to perform testicular self-examination: a simple, but effective, implementation intentions intervention. (Abstract)

Encouraging young males to perform testicular self-examination: a simple, but effective, implementation intentions intervention. The objective of this study was to examine the effectiveness of a simple psychological intervention known as 'implementation intentions' to promote performance of testicular self-examination (TSE) in a sample of young males.A prospective, randomized controlled design measured knowledge of testicular cancer, prior experience with TSE and intention to perform TSE within (...) age group for testicular cancer. Just under half the original participants (76/159) completed the study. We measured performance of TSE and future intention to perform TSE.Responders and non-responders did not differ on any of the measures assessed at Time 1. At Time 2, 30 (65%) participants in the intervention reported performing TSE compared with 12 (40%) in the control condition, and chi-squared analyses revealed that the difference was significant.The implementation intentions intervention

156. Teaching testicular self-examination: education and practices in pediatric residents. (Abstract)

Teaching testicular self-examination: education and practices in pediatric residents. Although testicular cancer is the most common cancer among 15- to 35-year-old male individuals, physicians seldom conduct testicular self-examination (TSE) education, thus potentially missing opportunities for early detection. Pediatric residents should be learning TSE skills training and be encouraged to incorporate them into routine practice. There are no published studies addressing the medical education (...) and practices of pediatric residents regarding testicular cancer and TSE. The purpose of this study was to determine the prevalence of pediatric residents who teach TSE to their adolescent patients, and significant factors related to teaching TSE.A cross-sectional study was conducted of all pediatric residents at 2 pediatric residency programs during the 2000 to 2001 academic year. A self-administered, 37-item Internet-based questionnaire was developed, pilot-tested, and then used. Statistical analyses
