How to Perform a Genital Exam
Dr. Liza: And so here we have a sort of fake vulva. And I remember that vulva comes in all sizes and shapes and colors and—
Dr. Travis: And you could do this yourself with a mirror, right?
Dr. Liza: You’re doing yourself with the mirror, you squat, sit again you’re just still going to be in an interesting position but you use a mirror and you hold it. And basically, you go from outside and you don’t do any internal examination. And you’ll start with where the hair is which would actually be in this area, which we call the mons. And then you go to the outer lips and you’re going to look for again color, look to see if there are any lesions, any bumps, and ulcerations.
Because that it’s going to help to detect vulvar cancer, and other source of skin conditions that can be treat or that can lead to a cancer. So you want to look at the outer lips and then the inner lips or the labia minora. The labia majora is the outer lips. And then you’re also going to look at the area that we called the perineum, just area between the vagina, that end of the vagina and the rectum because that is the area where a lot of cancers on the outside will come up.
So again, know your body women because that’s really, really important.
Dr. Jim: At this we were talking about the general exams. Let me just throw at it. This is for the men you know testicular cancer is the most common cancer ages 15 to 35. So testicular exams are really important, best to do right after a bath or a hot shower so things are nice and relaxed and warm. And just kind of roll, you can reach down and roll the two things between—that’s a medical term two things.
Dr. Drew: Jim you’re not talking to kids you can say it.
Dr. Travis: It’s okay you are doctor.
Dr. Jim: Its testicles, it’s a testicular, you know. —know your body and that way if you do this regularly, if something new comes up a new lump, a new area of tenderness, you’ll know to get to ask to the doctor.
Dr. Liza: Even if you’re diagnosed because you have to know what’s normal, right?
Dr. Drew: We don’t need to make—lie to yourself.
Dr.Liza: Please know your bodies.
Dr. Jim: No, no Drew.
Dr. Drew: We are saying the same things, get to know you body.
