Young Person’s Testicular Cancer Project
The Young Person’s Testicular Cancer Project is dedicated to supporting younger men.
Testicular cancer most commonly affects men between the ages of 15-45 with over 2,300 men being diagnosed each year in the UK.
Fortunately, testicular cancer is highly treatable and most men with early-stage cancer will be cured. It currently has a 98% survival rate.
The public does not always understand that testicular cancer usually affects young men. There are also many misconceptions around the diagnosis and the treatment of testicular cancer.
Our project was set up to engage with school nurses, health professionals and education providers. The aim is to equip them with better resources to help young people understand testicular cancer and its signs and symptoms.
