Chris Hughes gets testicles out live on this Morning as he tells about health scare

Chris Hughes has been praised by the Morning Viewers for having a live testicular examination.

The brave Love Island star got his balls out on the camera after talking about his own health scare.

Chris discovered a problem with one of his testicles when he was just 14-years-old but did not seek medical help until he was 20.

There was a build up of a vein coming from his kidney and he was diagnosed with two conditions that left doctors fearing that he might be infertile like his brothers.

Chris underwent four operations, including keyhole surgery, and has been left with a big scar around his pubic region.

Dr. Chris placed his fingers on Chris's testicles to show viewers what to do

Chris, who has no long lasting damage, said: "I was around 14. I had a lot of baths. I noticed it was almost brain-like, it was a build-up of our veins.

"I got myself looked at by a doctor. I got referenced and had operations in Bristol. I had three operations on the varicose there's my left testicle. It was due to safety as the veins take oxygen.

"They came from my kidney so they coiled around my hip region. Keyhole [surgery] did not work

"I have a big scar around my pubic region as they coiled the veins to settle that issue."

Chris found it hard to seek help

Chris, who has a low sperm count, has revealed that his two brothers are completely infertile, but both have "miracle" children.

He also explained that his cousin had his testicle removed after discovering he had a testicular cancer because of a stomach kramps as it moved up through his body.

Revealing why he did not get checked out sooner, Chris said: "Because it doesnt come with a lot of pain, it's easy to neglect

"Everyone thinks they know their body. There's a good way to check them. I'll be honest with you, it's not something you grab hold of in everyday life. You wash yourself, but not necessarily use your fingers to identify."

Dr. Chris explained how to do an effective examination

Chris then stepped across the studio to have a testicular examination with Dr. Chris.

The resident doctor explained that men should check their balls once a month, ideally after a hot shower or bath as the scrotum relaxes and the testicles hang down.

Dr. Chris places his fingers behind Chris's testicles at the back and places his thumb on the front.

Chris added: "I'm a shame people are so shy in terms of getting checked out."

Chris was praised by This Morning viewers

This Morning viewers took to Twitter to praise Chris for raising awareness.

One viewer said: "Well done @ chrishughes_22. Very brave 2 get your testicles out on live tv, but for such an amazing reason."

Another added: "Well done @ chrishughes_22 This is a very important issue for men and especially young men. Nothing to be ashamed of. Check yourself and make sure you go to your doctor. Testicular cancer is so curable."
