Testicular Cancer Awareness Month

Posted on April 25th, 2024

Testicular cancer is the most common type of cancer to affect men between the ages of 15 and 49 but treatment is more likely to be successful if it is caught early. Around 2,300 men in the UK are diagnosed with testicular cancer every year.

It is important to check your testicles regularly. You can find advice on -> How to check for testicular cancer | Macmillan Cancer Support.

Early signs of testicular cancer include:

  • a hard lump on the front or side of a testicle
  • swelling or enlargement of a testicle
  • pain or discomfort in a testicle or scrotum
  • an unusual difference between one testicle and the other.
