National Testicular Cancer Awareness Month on CancerConnect

Sun Valley, ID & Fort Worth, TX– OMNI Health Media (OMNI) announces the launch of testicular cancer educational programs for national testicular cancer awareness month. As the month of April brings testicular cancer into focus, it’s time to increase public understanding of the disease, including its prevalence, approaches to screening and prevention, treatment options, and resources that offer updated testicular cancer information throughout the year.

According to statistics from the American Cancer Society (ACS), the incident rate of testicular cancer has been on the rise for many years although testicular cancer itself is not common and can usually be treated successfully. The ACS estimates that in 2015 there will be approximately 8,430 new cases in the United States and  380 deaths related to testicular cancer.[1]

Although experts have not yet found a reason for the gradual increase in testicular cancer, progress is being made in research and in public awareness, as campaigns promote prevention and early detection of testicular cancer. Staying informed with the latest news on prevention and screening is an important step in reducing your risk of developing testicular cancer and of detecting disease in its early, most treatable stages. And, should a diagnosis occur, access to current, in-depth treatment information can help you get the best care.
