Posted by: amandahulme - Posted on:

During the month of April we spread awareness for Testicular and Bowel (Colon) cancer. We have lots of information regarding these types of cancers including What they are, symptoms to look out for, diagnosing and treatments. Please see below for more information and follow the links to the Cancer Research website for each type.

Testicular cancer

Testicular cancer is when abnormal cells in a testicle start to divide and grow in an uncontrolled way.  The testicles are part of the male reproductive system.


Bowel cancer

Bowel cancer means cancer that starts in the large bowel (colon) and the back passage (rectum). It is also known as colorectal cancer. Your treatment depends on where the cancer starts in your bowel.

The bowel is split into 2 parts – the small bowel and the large bowel. The large bowel includes the colon, the rectum and the bowel opening (anus).
