Men's health in your 20s
During your 20s, you go through a range of changes, from physical changes to your body, to emotional maturity and changes to your social life.
This is a wonderful time of life for most young men, for others it can present a number of challenges.
As life changes, you experience more freedom and independence, but there are also a number of risks you need to be aware of.
Find a GP you like, trust and get along with - it makes a difference.
Talk to your GP about:
+ Your family's medical history
+ Examining your testicles for lumps and bumps
+ Sexually transmitted diseases
+ Your skin cancer risk - get those moles checked out
+ Your blood cholesterol and glucose
+ Any depression or anxiety concerns
get to know your testes
All young men should be aware of the look and feel of their testicles.
Regular self-examination will alert you to any changes in terms of lumps, bumps or size changes.
Any pain or change in your testicle(s) should be followed up immediately with your GP.
