Testicular cancer usually affects men between the ages of 15 and 49. Around 2,000 men are diagnosed every year.
Treatment for testicular cancer is one of the most treatable types of cancer, but it is much more effective if it is diagnosed early. That’s why it is important to know your testicles and what they should look and feel like. If you notice any lumps or changes you should go and see your GP. Changes do not mean that you do have cancer, but it is essential to have any abnormalities checked.
More information about testicular cancer, including symptoms, treatment and support services, can be found on the NHS Choices website.
If you are a smoker, giving up can reduce your chances of developing testicular cancer by half (as well as reduce your risk of getting many other serious health conditions such as lung cancer and heart disease). More information about stopping smoking can be found on the NHS Smokefree website.
