Students Touching Fake Balls To Learn About Cancer

In the modern world, doctors have tons of diagnostic tools at their disposal. But sometimes nothing beats the good old-fashioned human touch. That’s what students at the Northern Alberta Institute of Technology are learning through a program that has them touching artificial balls to learn the signs of testicular cancer.

A robust self-examination once a month is recommended to all men, but if you do notice something out of the ordinary it’s important that a doctor can evaluate the state of your sack. We’ve shared multiple stories of physicians not understanding or recognizing the signs until it’s too late, so it’s great that these students are taking testicular cancer seriously.

Here’s hoping that the next generation of doctors will save even more lives with the knowledge they gained in school.
