Hello everyone,

To ensure we help spread the word underwear brand Tommy John have teamed up with the Testicular Cancer Foundation to raise awareness through their #KnowYourBalls campaign. Please help  and raise awareness!
 
What is testicular cancer?

Testicular cancer occurs when normal, healthy cells, which are carefully regulated by the body, begin to reproduce uncontrollably within the an area pf the body such as the testicles.
 
A few facts.... 
 
Over 2,200 men will be diagnosed with testicular cancer in the UK each year
 
 
It most commonly affects men between the ages of 15-45 and is statistically the most common cancer in men aged between 25-49 in the UK

 
If caught at an early stage men can expect a high cure rate with 99% of men disease free at one year
 
 
Signs and Symptoms
  • A small pea sized lump can be felt in around 90% of cases and in over 80% of cases this will be painless
  • Dragging sensation, ache or pain
  • Back pain caused by an enlarged lymph node in the back
