Testicular cancer: Speak openly - Get informed!

In UK 2,288 new cases of testicular cancer were reported in 2015, and 57 deaths from testicular cancer, in 2016. In the early stages, testicular cancer is highly treatable (over 98%). Preventable cases of testicular cancer are not known as it is not clearly linked to any preventable risk factors.
