Testicular Cancer Awareness Talk

Testicular Cancer Awareness Talk

We welcomed Vince Wolverson from the charity 'It's on the Ball' to the sixth form assembly on Tuesday 21 January 2020.

Vince spoke to students about the signs of testicular cancer, dispelled a few myths about its causes, and shared some individual experiences of having a testicular cancer diagnosis, including his own. The message he was most keen to emphasise was that of the high survival rates for those who are diagnosed early, and therefore the importance of seeking early professional help and advice for any concerns or issues. Vince also shared information to students from a related campaign, 'Cop a Feel': both charities encourage students to check themselves regularly and offer monthly reminders about this via social media which students can sign up to. Because 80% of testicular cancer cases are found in those from ages 15-45, it is particularly important for students to be aware of this particular type of cancer, its signs and symptoms.

 

Thank you to Vince for coming to speak so honestly and informatively to students.
