The best time for you to examine your testicles is during or after a bath or shower, when the skin of the scrotum is relaxed.
Hold your penis out of the way and examine each testicle separately.
Hold your testicle between your thumbs and fingers with both hands and roll it gently between your fingers.
Look and feel for any hard lumps or nodules (smooth rounded masses) or any change in the size, shape, or consistency of your testicles.
It’s normal for one testicle to be slightly larger than the other, and for one to hang lower than the other. You should also be aware that each normal testicle has a small, coiled tube called the epididymis that can feel like a small bump on the upper or middle outer side of the testis. Normal testicles also contain blood vessels, supporting tissues, and tubes that carry sperm. Some men may confuse these with abnormal lumps at first. If you have any concerns, ask your doctor.
