Testicular Cancer Self-Check Infographics


JUN 4, 2024


We welcome the Oversight Board's decision today, June 4, 2024, on this case which deals with an image posted to Facebook. The image contains six drawings of a man using his hands to examine his testicles for cancer and the user included a caption that says: “have you checked your balls this month?”

Upon initial review, Meta removed this content for violating our Adult Nudity and Sexual Activity policy, as laid out in the Facebook Community Standards. However, after the board brought the case to our attention, we determined that we had removed the content in error and reinstated the post.

There will be no further updates to this case.
