DO A SELF EXAMINATION
These are best performed during or after a warm shower or bath.
Hold the testicle between your thumbs and fingers and roll it gently (with slight pressure) between your fingers.
Do you notice any of the following:
- hard lumps, smooth or rounded bumps
- changes in size, shape or consistency
- a dull ache in the lower abdomen, back or groin
(Do not panic but see your GP asap!)
ANOTHER OPTION – MEDICAL THERMAL IMAGING
Medical Thermal Imaging is another weapon in the arsenal in early detection of testicular health issues. Unlike other screening methods thermal imaging scans for physiological changes in the body that can alert your health care provider of changing health conditions.
Medical Thermal Imaging (also known as, Digital Infrared Thermal Imaging (D.I.T.I), or Thermography) is a non-invasive clinical imaging technique for detecting and monitoring a number of diseases and physical injuries by showing any thermal abnormalities present in the body.
With Medical Thermal Imaging there is no radiation and is safe. The procedure takes only 5 minutes.
Three to four images are taken of the penis and testicles where after the images are sent to specialist doctors to analyse the images and write a report. The report and images are sent back to the patient via e-mail.
P.S. Thermal Health Solutions has a partnership with Love Your Nuts
