Testicular Cancer Awareness Month
According to the Movember Foundation, testicular cancer is the most common cancer affecting men between the ages of 15 – 35. In most cases, the outcome for men with testicular cancer is positive. But a 95% chance of survival is no comfort to the 1 man in 20 who won’t make it. Know the facts and take action early.
“I am generally a young, fit and healthy person, so the thought of getting cancer would have never crossed my mind. It was in June 2013 when I noticed a small, pea-sized lump on my right testicle. After putting it off long enough, I decided to go and see my doctor.” Read Hugo’s story.
“I didn’t go to the doctor right away.It really come down to the macho nature of men.” Read Eric’s story.
