Men’s health awareness month: Get to know your nuts

Did you know that men will die on average 4.5 years earlier than women for largely preventable reasons? 

That’s why, this Movember, we want to highlight - and hopefully prevent - a disease that affects one in every 215 men. Testicular cancer.

With November being men’s health awareness month, we want to make sure you know exactly how to search for signs of cancer down there. Not only because over 70% of men have never checked their nuts but also because the earlier you spot the signs, the more likely you are to survive. 

In fact, Cancer Research UK says that 95% of men with testicular cancer survive for more than one to five years and ‘five years is a common time point to measure survival. But some people live much longer than this.’
