Having an Awkward Conversation Could Save Your Son’s Life

Jim Higley, aka “Bobblehead Dad” has put together a video to help educate parents of boys about the importance of self-screening for Testicular Cancer.

Testicular Cancer is the #1 form of cancer for young men ages 15-35.

That means that we, as parents of boys, are responsible for teaching them how to do a simple self-exam in the shower, just once a month. They need to know what to look for, and how.

Jim urges parents to go to visit SingleJingles.org to learn more. Their simple guide for how to thoroughly examine the testicles is really helpful, and easy to email to your son to help facilitate a conversation about the importance of self-checks.

    I thought circumcision was supposed to solve that. Where are the sarcasm tags.

  2. This doesn’t go any where near far enough in exploiting embarrassment factors in eduction for young guys on how to check balls. It sure as hell don’t get any where near mum and dads squirming.

    Can we have a few real live examples – video too please! And then we can all vote for the best blushes, most original squirm – and technical merit for visual aids! P^)

    I was wondering about two dried lima beans in a sock?

    That really will separate out the dads from the lads and mums choices would be even more fascinating! I also wonder if you need a badge for after wards, sort of “I’ve showed my son how to do his own nuts!”.
