It’s in the Bag on the UH Bristol NHS website

Our medical-focused sister website is your first port of call for everything you need to know about your treatment.

The site explains the diagnosis journey, including the scans and tests used to detect and measure testicular cancer. There’s also information to help you understand what’s happening once treatment actually starts.

You can find out what it’s really like to go through ultrasound, chemo and follow-up by reading the stories of patients who’ve gone before you. There’s also a section on the Multidisciplinary Team (MDT) of specialists who’ll be assessing your case and deciding on the best course of action.
