Testicular Self-Exam (TSE)
Cancer of the testicles, the primary male sex glands, is the most common type of cancer in males aged 20 to 35.
To detect signs of testicular cancer, do a testicular self-exam (TSE) as advised by your doctor or health care provider.
Reasons to Contact Your Health Care Provider
