April Spotlight: Testicular Cancer Awareness

April 10, 2024 Uncategorized

April marks Testicular Cancer Awareness Month, a time to spotlight an important men’s health issue. Testicular cancer, though rare, primarily affects young to middle-aged men. Understanding its signs and risk factors is crucial for early detection and treatment.

Know the Signs:

  • Look out for lumps, swelling, or changes in size or shape of the testicles.
  • Pay attention to persistent pain or discomfort in the testicle or scrotum.
  • Notice any feeling of heaviness or fluid buildup in the scrotum.

Risk Factors:

  • Age, family history, undescended testicles, personal history, and race can all impact risk.

Take Action:

  • Perform regular self-exams.
  • Promptly consult a healthcare professional if any abnormalities are detected.
  • Spread awareness to encourage early detection and open conversations about men’s health.

Let’s unite this April to promote awareness, early detection, and better outcomes for testicular cancer.
