After a health education session about testicular self-examination, a patient approaches the nurse with questions. Which statement made by the patient indicates the need for further education regarding TSE?

TSE must be done every 2 months

Explanation

•TSE should be done every month, not every 2 months.

•Monthly testicular self-examination (TSE) may detect testicular cancer at an early stage. This is helpful as many testicular cancers are first discovered by self-examination as a painless lump or an enlarged testicle.

•The other options are accurate statements about TSE.
