It is important to be familiar with your own breast tissue as you are the best person to detect changes.
See a health care provider right away if you notice any of these changes:
- A lump or swelling
- Skin irritation or dimpling
- Nipple pain or the nipple turning inward
- Redness or scaliness of the nipple or breast skin
- A discharge other than breast milk
It is important to be familiar with one's testicles. Between regular checkups, if you notice anything unusual, you should talk with a health care provider.
In most cases of testicular cancer, there is a lump on a testicle or the testicle is swollen or larger. There is often no pain. People with testicular cancer may also notice a feeling of heaviness or aching in the lower belly or scrotum.
