Just as women need to be responsible for their reproductive and general health, men too have to take an active role in their health.
All men from ages 15 to 40 should know, and perform, a monthly testicular self-exam. While it does take a bit of practice to get to know how your individual body feels, it is not hard to do a self-exam and only takes about 10 minutes.
The testicular self-exam is just what it sounds like-you will be checking the testicles for any visible changes and feeling for any unusual lumps. Should you ever find anything unusual, it is very important that you contact a health care provider.
For a good "how to" on doing a testicular self-exam, visit: http://menshealth.about.com or pick up a brochure in the Wellness Center.
The Men's Health site found through About.com offers a number of excellent subject headings. The sites are informative and offer further resources on most topics. Among the subjects offered are cancer, colon cancer, hair loss, impotence, STD's and sexuality.
