Dr Hilary does a testicular examination

It's day two of our Check Your Chaps campaign which seeks to encourage early detection of testicular and prostate cancer - and Dr Hilary is here to show us exactly how to check the testicles in a live demonstration.

We also catch up with some rugby players who are supporting the cause and learning more about checking themselves.

How to test your testicles

A massive 98% of testicular cancer cases can be treated if caught early enough. Testicular Self Examination (TSE) is the easiest way to identify any potential testicular problems. It only takes a few minutes to perform and is best performed monthly after a bath or shower when the scrotum will be warm and relaxed. Check out these tips we got from male cancer charity Orchid.

Check each testicle separately, using one or both of your hands (see link above for reference). Roll each testicle between the thumb and forefinger to check that the surface is free of lumps or bumps. Do not squeeze! Get to know your balls; their size, texture and anatomy. Identify the epididymis or sperm collecting tube, often mistaken for an abnormal lump that runs behind each testicle (Figure 2).

It's time to Check Your Chaps

Todays the launch of our Check Your Chaps campaign - aimed at raising awareness of testicular and prostate cancer - two of the most common cancers in men.

As the title suggests we're encouraging viewers up and down the country to check their chaps regularly for the early signs of these cancers. By checking your chap we are aiming for partners to encourage men to take a closer inspection, or give a nudge to see their GP if anything untoward is found. Basically we are throwing away the notion of embarrassment in the hope of saving lives.

For week one we'll be focusing solely on the ever-important matter of testicular cancer.

Today were joined by the campaigns' celebrity ambassadors - husband and wife Brian McFadden and Vogue Williams alongside Dr Hilary Jones.
