Young Person’s Testicular Cancer Project

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 it is highly treatable and the majority of men with early stage cancer will be cured. It currently has a 98% survival rate. However the fact its mainly a young man’s cancer doesn’t always fit with the public perception of the cancer and there are many misconceptions around the diagnosis and the treatment of testicular cancer.

  

The Young Person’s Testicular Cancer project was set up to engage with school nurses, health professionals and education providers to equip them with greater resources to improve understanding of testicular cancer and its signs and symptoms, amongst the young people with whom they work.
