Here's one of three cheeky ads sponsored by the Peruvian charity Liga Contra el Cancer (League Against Cancer); the PSAs encourage men to do testicular self-exams. The two other ads show a Rubix Cube and a Blackberry for the undies pouch. I'm wondering if they realize that most young playstation-underwear-cancer.jpegmale gamers spend quite a bit of time playing with their joystick instead...

On a serious note, my mom was always a stickler for self-exams. In high school, I found a knot on one testicle and had to have surgery. If it hadn't been for that self exam, things could have ended quite a bit worse; as it was, one surgery solved everything and saved all my bits and pieces. Do it, guys. It takes 15 seconds and you can do it in the shower on the first of every month.

What else should you know? Here you are:
