Abstract Testicular cancer (TC) is the most common malignancy affecting men between the ages of 18 and 35. Eighty percent of the Armys male soldiers are potentially at risk for TC because they fall within the TC age risk group. One study found that TC increased among military men by 78% between 1988 and 1996. The cure rate of TC is dependent upon early detection, which is best done through testicular self-examination (TSE). Department of Defense surveys indicate that 66% of Americas military do not perform monthly TSE and only half have ever received any education about TC or TSE. TC and TSE education must become an integral part of Army health-promotion programs.
