I have found a small lump on my dog testicle and people think it's odd to feel Testicles. I know it's strange but how else look for cancer with out going to the vet's? Because if you keep going and there is nothing wrong with him it's going to cost you. And I found a little lump and I am worried about him he is 10 years oldso he is getting on a bit. am I weird for checking his testicles? How else would you catch cancer early? With checking and taking him to the vet's?

I don't think it's weird because how else are you supposed to make sure he is ok without wasting money on a vet who will most likely give him a clean bill of health anyways? Besides, vets do it (probably all day) so I think it's fine. But I understand that it might make others uncomfortable because I would be too if I had to feel my dogs testicles, I would feel like a molester or something :-( even though I'm obviously not. But if you found a lump, it may just be his anatomy. Unless you know it wasn't there before. Also, if he's been acting tired or losing weight it is worth checking out.0

It's uncommon but there's nothing wrong with it, you love your dog and want to make sure it remains healthy.1
