PALPATION OF A BUCK’S TESTICLES

October 28, 2008

I apologize if some of you are not familiar with some of the terms used in this web log. Please let me know if there is anything else you need ‘translated’. Now this is the procedure on how to perform a palpation of goat’s testicles(testis).

The Buck is held (you will need someone to help you) in a standing position. Place one hand on each side at the base of the scrotum. Feel for the spermatic cords between your thumb and fingers and gradually move down to the epididymis. Without excessive pressure, most abnormalities can be felt for such as swelling or hardness. A comparison between the testicles (testis) can be made by simultaneously using both hands, one on each side.


The simple diagram should show you where everything mentioned is.
