05 November - Health - November marks Testicular Awareness Month

In today's show, we spoke to Dr Lisa Kaestner - From the UCT’s Urology Department at Groote Schuur Hospital to tell us more about Testicular cancer. November marks Testicular Awareness Month. CANSA is partnering with Movember for the 4th year to raise awareness regarding men’s cancers by encouraging them to grow a moustache in lieu of wearing a ribbon and to discuss Men’s Health issues with other men. The month hopes that men will start to take better care of themselves and decrease their cancer risk. Men from the age of 15 to 40 years need to examine their testicles each month, preferably after a bath or shower, to feel for any pea-sized lumps that could indicate testicular cancer.
