Abstract

Testicular cancer represents a significant threat to the health of males aged between 15 and 34 years. As there has been significant focus on early detection of cancers in order to intervene at the earliest opportunity to improve treatment outcomes, the detection of testicular cancer through secondary prevention merits careful consideration. This article discusses two health promotion approaches to dealing with the subject of optimizing men's health: the merits and disadvantages of testicular self-examination education; and screening for testicular tumours in high-risk populations. Recommendations for adapting traditional approaches are also discussed.
