Testicular cancer is the most common cancer in men aged 15 to 49. Yet, for many young and middle-aged guys, it’s not even on their radar. Over 2,500 men are diagnosed with testicular cancer in the UK, but it is over 98% curable and, when detected early, requires less treatment. Nevertheless, many men don’t like to talk about their balls and find it a struggle to go to the GP. We would like to encourage men to check themselves regularly and feel confident to see a GP if they have any concerns. You can help us.
Watch out for our latest campaigns and help us spread the word about testicular cancer awareness, or help with one of our awareness events.
