Together, let’s help raise awareness of men’s health issues.

Did you know testicular cancer is the most common cancer of men between the ages of 20 and 50 but has very good outcomes if diagnosed and treated early. It is therefore very important that all men regularly self-examine their testicles to identify any lumps or concerns.

If any lumps or changes are identified it’s very important to see your GP or urologist urgently to get further assessment. This will normally involve a further examination by the GP or urologist and then likely an ultrasound scan to assess the testicle and the lump further.

If you do have any concerns or have noticed a lump do please go and see your GP or urologist as quickly as possible.
