Abstract: Testicular cancer is one of the most commonly diagnosed cancers among Singaporean men, with the age range of 15 to 30 years old. It is a medical field which is less explored, as compared to other common types of cancer such as lung or prostate cancer. Specifically, testicular self-examination (TSE) is a health protection behaviour that most Singaporean males are not familiar with. To develop effective communication strategies which will influence males’ attitude towards conducting TSE, a study was conducted against the framework of the Health Belief Model (HBM) and Theory of Planned Behaviour (TPB). This study has revealed that perceived benefits and self-efficacy emerged as the theory constructs that showed significance in influencing likelihood of adopting the recommended action of TSE among our target audience.
