Earlier this year, just as spring was beginning, Prostate Cancer UK launched a 30-second checker which could help men identify their risk so they could take action and get checked if necessary.

The sooner cancer is caught, the sooner treatment can begin.

Unlike prostate cancer, testicular cancer does present with symptoms in its early stages.

Symptoms include:
• A swelling or lump in one of the testicles (normally the size of a pea or larger)
• An increase in firmness of a testicle
• A difference in the appearance of one testicle and the other
• A dull ache or sharp pain in the testicles or scrotum
• A feeling of heaviness in the scrotum.
