CONCLUSION
 
Testicular cancer is an important public health problem that
 
needs to be addressed. The only known risksare all predetermined;
 
therefore, a focus on earlier diagnosis and treatment through
 
regular TSE isindicated. The most important factors involved
 
in this sample of pediatric residents teaching TSE totheir 
 
patients include confidence in performing a testicular examination,confidence in teaching TSE, andknowing someone with testicular 
 
cancer. Residency program directors could use this information
 
to helpensure that their program is fulfilling their residents¶
 
educational needs pertaining to male health.Information in
 
this study could be used to design a theory-based educational
 
intervention to help increaseresidents¶ teaching practices.
 
The HBM could be used to increase physician promotion of TSE
 
and thenultimately increase young male individuals¶ TSE
 
practices.
