With April being Testicular Cancer Month, we want to increase knowledge and awareness of the disease through our “Know Your Balls” campaign.
Testicular cancer is the most common cancer in males ages 15–34 years old, but the good news is that it is one of the most treatable and survivable types of cancer. When detected early, 99% of guys diagnosed with testicular cancer can survive it. The bad news is that there is extremely low awareness, jeopardizing the chances that guys know to look for it to be able to catch it early.
The “Know Your Balls” campaign raises awareness among young men to be more aware of their risk for the disease and the precautions they should already be taking, such as conducting monthly self-exams and seeing a doctor immediately if they detect any irregularities.
The Testicular Cancer Foundation provides education and support to young men to raise awareness about testicular cancer. TCF also supports families of testicular cancer patients and shares its resources with the medical and healthcare communities, schools and various young men’s groups.
