Male Cancer Awareness Week 2019 - 'Lumps and Bumps- Check Yourself!' takes place from 8th April to 14th April.

The Male Cancer Awareness Campaign is a charity raising awareness and reducing embarrassment of male cancers. Men are often too embarrassed to seek medical advice on potential early warning signs.

Testicular cancer in particular is curable if caught early enough and treated.
