Testicular Awareness Month
Dan Silver started a Charity supporting men with Testicular Cancer this is what he said…
“The charity is named after myself, due to my own personal battle with Testicular Cancer back in 2009. We at the charity supports males affected by Cancer, whether its directly or indirectly. We also support males whom are affected by Testicular Cancer through their journeys by supplying them with Dash Care Packs. The Care packs consist of A Kindle Fire, Bath robe, toiletries, beany hat, gloves, scarf, heat socks and other little goodies. So far we have supported 50 males affected by Testicular Cancer. We have also introduced a Dash Meal ticket to the pack in the value of £100 where the patient can also purchase food throughout their treatment”
Very important month for the charity as awareness is very important and self examination is important. I have attached a diagram for your yes, so maybe you can attach it somehow. Some key facts below about Testicular Cancer;
- It is a treatable and usually curable form of cancer. Testicular cancer typically develops in one or both testicles in men. It generally affects those between 15 and 40 years of age.
- About half of all cases of testicular cancer are in men between the ages of 20 and 34. Males of any age can develop testicular cancer, including infants and elderly men. Testicular cancer is not common; a man’s lifetime chance of getting it is about 1 in 263. The risk of dying from this cancer is about 1 in 5,000
It’s possible to get testicular cancer at a younger or older age, but it’s not as common. Most people with testicular cancer are diagnosed in their 20s or 30s, so it usually affects younger people. Testicular cancer isn’t very common — only about 1 in every 263 people with testicles will have it in their lifetime.
