What is it?

Testicular cancer is a frightening condition for men and their loved ones. Most often it is diagnosed in young men who are typically not expected to be faced with a diagnosis of cancer. It is actually the most common cancer in young men in Canada. It is also one of the most curable cancers. 

 
 

Check 'em out

You don’t need permission to check ‘em™ regularly. In fact, it could save your life. Testicular cancer is the most prevalent cancer in men aged 15 to 29, but it’s also among the most treatable when caught early.

So learn to check ‘em out at least once a month. The more familiar you are with their normal shape and size, the earlier you will be able to detect an abnormality. 

 
 
Of all cancers, testicular cancer is the one that has the highest cure rate.
