Men are generally less likely to seek help when living with depression. Feeling depressed is nothing to be ashamed of. Symptoms of depression include feeling sad or anxious, not wanting to do activities you used to enjoy, restlessness, eating more or having no appetite, feeling guilty, trouble concentrating, and/or having thoughts of harming yourself. If you think you may be suffering from depression, you should seek medical help immediately.
Roughly 1 in 250 males will develop testicular cancer. Symptoms include a lump on the testicle or a swollen or larger than normal testicle. Some testicular cancers might not cause any symptoms until it has reached an advanced stage.
Men should perform self-examinations to search for any lumps.
