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.
