The Oddballs Foundation & MKM Building Supplies Warrington are raising awareness of Testicular Cancer

April is Testicular Cancer Awareness Month

Around 2,300 men are diagnosed with testicular cancer each year in the UK and it is now the most common form of cancer in men aged between 15 – 45.

But there is good news.  It’s one of the most treatable forms of cancer and nearly all men survive the disease.

But as with all cancers, catching it early is the key to a successful outcome.

According to the Oddballs Foundation the symptoms are:

  • Lumps or bumps and painless swellings (MOST COMMON!)
  • Increased firmness
  • Dull ache or sharp pain (may come and go)
  • Feeling of heaviness

The important message to men is check your balls, at least once a month!

Oddballs is a much-loved underwear brand with a foundation that raises awareness of testicular cancer.

The foundation particularly delivers its message via their University Ambassador Programme, delivering talks on testicular cancer; reminding boys and men to check their balls – and  even more importantly – removing any stigma or embarrassment about it!

For the third year running, MKM Building Supplies is partnering with the Oddballs Foundation and this month are running a campaign for tradesmen Check Your Tools
