Let’s take a closer look at balls
So what happens if you are diagnosed?
Testicular cancers are also called germ cell tumours. Germ cells in men produce sperm, which is why you get the tumours in your balls. There are many different types of testicular cancers from Seminomas, Non-seminomatous germ cell tumours to rarer types such as non-Hodgkin Lymphoma.
If you are diagnosed as having one of these then try not to worry. Testicular cancers are among the most treatable forms of cancer and have very high survival rates. However, saying this is a lot easier than doing it.
This is where we come in. If you have been diagnosed recently and want to talk to someone then give us a call on 0800 77 23 910 or fill in the contact form on the contact page here. Our job is to help you through this process and understand that there are many ways to deal with it. Jack, our Chairman, has been through this himself and he’d be happy to meet up for a coffee or have a chat over the phone to talk about his experience and what he did to cope through the process.
Mostly, know that you are not alone and there are plenty of people you can talk to. Don’t be afraid or embarrassed. Be proud of who you are and fight back!
