Like some body parts, it's common for a man's testicles to look different - 1 may be bigger or hang lower than the other.
But the way testicles feel should be the same -- they should be smooth and firm.
If you -- or your partner -- feel any lumps or swelling in your testicles it’s important to get them checked by a doctor, as they could be a sign of conditions such as chlamydia, a cyst or a twisted testicle.
The chances of any lump being cancerous are low -- testicular cancer makes up just 1% of all cancers in men. However, it's more common in men aged between 15 and 45.
But whatever the cause of any changes or lumps, the earlier you seek help the better -- so it’s important to be aware of your body and what’s normal for you.
Try today's free resource below for instructions on how to check your testicles.
