Nad & Tad are on a mission to help men get in touch with their testicles. That’s right. Because testicular cancer rates are on the rise. In fact, it’s the most common cancer in men ages 15-34. But if caught early, it’s beatable. So it’s time to have a ballsy conversation about what to look for and how to do it.

signs and symptoms: what to look for
Signs of testicular cancer can include:
A lump or area of hardness
A change in the way a testicle feels, including swelling or enlargement (keep in mind it’s totally normal for one testicle to be slightly larger than the other, and for one to hang lower than the other)
A feeling of heaviness or aching in the lower belly (abdomen) or scrotum
Pain in one of your testicles
Sudden buildup of fluid in the scrotum
If you notice one of these symptoms, it doesn’t necessarily mean you have testicular cancer. Sometimes the symptom can be the result of a different medical condition. Either way, make an appointment with your urologist or doctor as soon as you can and get your testicles checked out.

Nad & Tad-ify yourself on Snapchat!
Create a personalized video of yourself (and a friend!) with the Nad & Tad Snapchat lens. Life as a testicle never looked so good.
For Testicular Cancer Awareness Month, Nad & Tad partnered with Gun Hill Brewing Company in NYC to create a custom Nad & Tad Odd Ball Ale, and raise awareness of testicular cancer and the importance of early detection.
