Testicular cancer is the most common cancer for young men aged 15-29. Make sure your teenage son (especially from 15 onwards) knows that he needs to report any change to how his testicles look and feel to a doctor. Early detection of testicular cancer can make a difference.
Talk to your children about their bodies
Teaching children from an early age to be aware of what’s normal for their bodies will help them notice changes and get them checked by a doctor. You may think children don’t need to worry about this part of healthy living because they’re still young, but it’s about getting in to the habit of being aware of what’s normal – and talking about it.
