By the end of June, more than 60,000 Americans will be certified to use the new Testicule Self Examination, the Department of Defense says.
The exam, which is a more advanced version of the previously-issued exam, is meant to help servicemembers and veterans get more accurate information on their medical conditions and treatment.
A Testicula is a tiny piece of tissue that hangs from the tip of a finger and connects to the vagina and cervix, making it easier for doctors to examine.
The new exam will also allow doctors to see if the condition is genetic or the result of an infection, as opposed to simply a symptom.
It’s expected to be used by more than 200,000 service members and veterans over the next year.
According to the Department, the exam is now being offered through an online portal.
Veterans Affairs says it has already started accepting the exam for use in the military.
