Testicular Cancer Awareness - Things You Need to Know

by GregP_WN

April is Testicular Cancer Awareness month; this is one of the most common cancers in men between the ages of 15-35, yet it is not as talked about as other types of cancers. 1 of 270 men will be diagnosed with testicular cancer. Women are encouraged to do routine self-exams for signs of breast cancer, and it is the same for testicular cancer. It is important to know the signs and symptoms so that it is not overlooked; testicular cancer is very curable if caught early. This month, the Testicular Cancer Awareness Foundation is devoted to educating people on the signs and symptoms of testicular cancer, how to do a self-exam, risk factors, sperm banking, and how you can get involved to raise awareness.
