April is Testicular Awareness month and health experts are challenging men to play with their testicles to fight “Testicular Cancer” which affects male reproductive organs.
An ongoing social media campaign called Grab-A-Pair is encouraging men to testicles once a month to quickly detect unusual changes on their organs.
Meanwhile Specialist Physician, Dr. Aaron Mujajati from Lusaka tells Byta FM News that men will quickly know when something is wrong once they develop a habit of gently touching their testicles.
Dr. Mujajati explains that this is a cheaper way of detecting abnormalities and ultimately treating male organ related cancers before they get worse.
He has further noted that men are naturally shy to seek help hence this is a fast and simple self-test that would save lives from testicular cancer.
According to Testicular Cancer Awareness, the condition mainly affects young men between the ages of 20 and 39 and symptoms include pain, swelling, or lumps in the testicles.
