Procrastinating about getting a checkup? Early detection and effective treatment can reduce mortality in over 40% of cancer cases.

How and why should
you get your testicles
and prostate checked?

Taking care of your genitalia is a lifelong journey that begins in adolescence and lasts throughout life. Contrary to common beliefs, checkups are easy, and when practiced regularly, they can avoid bad scenarios.  If you’re a man between 40 and 80 years old, you could be at risk for Prostate Cancer – the most common cancer in men. If you’re a young man (20 years or older) and have noticed unusual changes in your testicles, like painless swelling, lumps, or any change in shape or texture, know that these are symptoms of Testicular cancer.

There are two ways to start
preventing these types of cancer:


Regular visits
to the doctor

Are you at risk
of having cancer?

As with most cancers, prostate cancer is more common as you get older. Having one or more of these risk factors doesn’t mean you will definitely get the disease. However, if you know the risks, it would be easier to detect cancer early and get the right treatment. 

For Prostate cancer:

• Being over 50 years old
• Having a close relative who has had prostate cancer or breast cancer
• Inherited faulty genes
• Lynch syndrome
• Height (Taller people are at higher risk) 
• Being obese and overweight

For Testicular cancer:

• Having undescended testicles (cryptorchidism)
• Abnormal cells in the testicle (GCNIS)
• Family history of Testicular cancer 
• Abnormality of the penis and urethra
• If you have had testicular cancer before, there’s a higher risk of developing cancer in the other testicle
