Willie Geist and Carson Daly are really serious about bringing awareness to men's health. 

Coming up Friday the TODAY anchors are planning to undergo a live exam for testicular cancer on national television. The quick procedure, complete with Geist and Daly wearing live mics, is for "Movember," TODAY's month-long initiative.

Testicular cancer is most common in young or middle-aged men. When caught early — and most cases are — it is one of the most curable forms of cancer. One of the simplest ways for men to detect a lump is with regular self-exams, although not all doctors recommend it. 

That's where Geist and Daly come in. The anchors will receive a thorough testicle check by Dr. David Samadi, chairman of urology at Lenox Hill Hospital in New York.

Their "No-Shave November" procedure was inspired by TODAY's Matt Lauer and Al Roker, who had a live prostate exam last year

Tune in to TODAY Friday for Willie and Carson's live visit to the doctor's office.
