MARTINEZ SABATER, A.; SANCHO CANTUS, D.  and  MARTINEZ PUIG, C.. Importance of school nurse in the detection of testicular neoplasia. Enferm. glob. [online]. 2011, vol.10, n.22. ISSN 1695-6141.

In this paper we propose a review of the literature in different databases (CINAHL, City, MEDLINE) to assess the importance of testicular cancer in adolescence and the crucial role of the nurse, namely the school nurse, in early detection of this disease. Having analyzed the issue and after becoming aware of the importance of teaching testicular self-examination practices correctly. It was concluded that the school nurse should not only develop a care activity, but that its functions should include the promotion of health and testicular cancer prevention. Within the educational process, and as a promotion for hygiene habits in teenagers, we argue, given the display characteristics of testicular neoplasia conducting workshops to instruct adolescents in testicular self-examination and the need for proper technique, to encourage the acquisition of habits of testicular self-examination like in women for early detection of breast disease.

Keywords : School nurse; testicular câncer; testicular self-examination.
