Testicular Self Examination
Testicular self examination should be carried out by all men, but it is particularly important in younger males between the ages of 15 and 45, the incidence of testicular cancer peakes at around mid to late 30's. It is widely recognised that the majority of men fail to carry out monthly self examination of their testicles, so these TSE (Testicular Self Examination) models will heighten awareness and help men perfect their self examination technique of their own testes.
The early detection of lumps in the male testicles is vital in the outcome for patients who develop testicular cancer. Testicular cancer is a very treatable cancer with 5 year survival rates at well over 90%, but it can only be treated if it is discovered in the first place. These models clearly illustrate the changes that can occur to the testes (testicles) and what men should be looking out for in self examination, if lumps or abnormalities are detected then the patient should always consult a qualified physician, in the UK your family GP, as soon as possible, and please remember not all changes in the testicles indicate a cancer.
