Male cancer awareness charity, Cahonas Scotland, has launched a new campaign and website to highlight the importance of early detection of testicular cancer. The new website offers self-check guides and information downloads to visitors seeking advice.
The Tartan Checks campaign carrying the message ‘Everyone else is interested in what’s under your kilt, are you?’ aims to make people aware of the symptoms of testicular cancer and encourage them to visit their GP should they discover any irregularities.
On launching the campaign, Cahonas Scotland founder and Chair Ritchie Marshall said: “We hope that this campaign will get people talking about Testicular cancer, and encourage men to become more aware of their body and the importance of regular self-checks. Research we have conducted with Queen Margaret University found that Scottish men had limited awareness about Testicular cancer risks, were reluctant to deal with concerns, unsure of symptoms and would delay consulting health professionals for advice.”
