Testicular Cancer

Fortunately, testicular cancer is also one of the most treatable male cancers with a success rate as high as 96 per cent if caught early enough. In more advanced cases, where the cancer has gone undiagnosed and spread outside the testicles, this drops to around 80 per cent.

Which, while still promising, highlights just how important it is to check yourself regularly so that you can spot anything out of the ordinary sooner rather than later and speak to your GP.

Over 45?

Although most common amongst younger men, testicular cancer can still occur in older age groups, so checking yourself regularly for lumps and bumps and being aware of the other symptoms is vital whatever your age.
