  • I want to raise awareness, please help!

    My name is Sarah Cowing and I have recently begun an A level Health and Social Care course. For one of my units I need to run a health campaign. I have decided to do a poster campaign at my local high schools, I hope to raise awareness and give information on how to check for testicular cancer.
    I would be very grateful if there is any information you could send me to help me do this in the right way. I have asked my husband, stepsons and male friends if they have ever checked themselves and was shocked to learn that not one of them had ever done so. I am hoping that giving information at an early age may encourage more men in my area to realise the importance of checking themselves regularly.
    Thank you

      There are good ideas to draw from around the Internet, such as on these sites:
      right inguinal orchiectomy 6/5/2003 > nonseminoma, stage I > surveillance > L-RPLND 6/24/2005 for recurrence, suspected teratoma but found seminoma, stage II > chylous ascites until 9/2005 > surveillance and "all clear" since
