Screening is a way to evaluate people without symptoms to determine if they are at risk for cancer or have already developed cancer.

Screening Guidelines

At this time, there are no official screening guidelines for testicular cancer.

Screening Tests

Screening tests for testicular cancer include the following:

Self-examination – you should examine your testes every month or two, especially if you have a risk factor. If you find a new lump, contact your doctor.
