WASHINGTON — Men’s Health Network (MHN) is joining organizations and communities across the country in April to recognize Testicular Cancer Awareness Month as part of its pledge to advocate for the health and wellness of men and their families.
About Testicular Cancer
Testicular cancer is the most common cancer among men aged between 15 and 35 years old and has one of the highest survival rates if found early. That’s what makes prevention techniques and overall awareness critically important. According to Ana Fadich, MPH, CHES, Vice President at MHN, “Testicular cancer continues to be the leading cause of cancer in young men and boys but remains a very treatable cancer,” Fadich continues, “That is why awareness is essential in reaching younger men who may not receive cancer prevention messages and educate them about the importance of early detection.”
Rovito further recommends that “males should perform testicular self-examination monthly to monitor if anything abnormal develops. If something out of the ordinary is discovered, males should speak to their healthcare provider immediately.”
