Check Yourself! - Testicular Cancer Awareness Month

Check Yourself! - Testicular Cancer Awareness Month

April is Testicular Cancer Awareness Month, and this month, our team at SGPomades is dedicated to raising awareness about testicular cancer, its symptoms, self-exam techniques, and education.

Understanding it

Testicular cancer develops in the testicles (testes). It's one of the most common forms of cancer among men aged fifteen to thirty-five. However, the good news is that when detected early, it has a 99% curable rate. That's why regular self-checks are crucial ‚Äď just one minute of your time could save your life.

Step-by-Step Self-Check

Now, we know talking about self-checks might seem a bit awkward, but trust us, it's essential. Incorporating it into your shower routine is easy and effective. Here's a step-by-step guide:

Step 1: Warm Up 

Take a warm shower to relax your scrotum and make it easier to feel for anything unusual.

Step 2: Lather Up 

Use soap to get some suds and ensure you can feel everything clearly.

Step 3: Check Yourself 

With gentle fingers, roll your testicles from side to side, up and down, feeling for any lumps, bumps, or changes in texture. Pay attention to any discomfort or abnormalities.

Step 4: Know What's Normal 

Familiarize yourself with the normal feel of your testicles, including the soft rope-like structure at the back. The more you know, the easier it'll be to spot anything out of the ordinary.

Step 5: Take Action 

If you do notice something unusual, don't hesitate to make a doctor's appointment. Early detection is key, so don't wait and don't rely solely on Google.


Monthly Maintenance

We recommend incorporating this self-check into your routine once a month. It's a small effort that can make a big difference in your health and well-being. Plus, it's an excuse to enjoy a little extra shower time ‚Äď who can argue with that?


Let's keep the conversation going even with your friends, although it may seem a little awkward at first. By spreading awareness, promoting regular self-checks, and prioritizing our health, we can ensure that every man feels confident and empowered when it comes to his testicular health. So go ahead, check yourself, and remember ‚Äď your health is no laughing matter.
