Doing periodic self exams of one's testicles can increase the chances of spotting testicular cancer early. Learning the proper techniques to do this as a nurse or caregiver or even doing the exam at home is almost as important as the actual exam. Our Testicular Exam Simulators are one of the best on the market and provide exceptional realism for teaching and learning the proper testicular examination techniques. This is an excellent model for hospitals and medical clinics to use in teaching men the proper techniques of examining their testicles.
Here are some facts about Testicular Cancer you may or may not know:
- Testicular cancer is a disease when testicular cells become abnormal (malignant) in one or both testicles.
- The exact cause of testicular cancer is not known but risk factors include undescended testicle(s), congenital abnormalities (for example, kidney, penile abnormalities), and history of testicular cancer (for example, family history or personal history of testicular cancer in one testicle).
- Testicular cancer is often first detected by the patient discovering a lump or swelling in a testicle; other symptoms include testicular pain or discomfort; testicular enlargement; aches in the abdomen, back, or groin; or a fluid collection in the scrotum."
