Working alongside TCF, Tommy John is hoping to erase the stigma surrounding the disease. It’s time to get a little “ballsy” and start the conversation that many are too timid to have. Speaking up and educating on the importance of performing a monthly self-exam is crucial in the fight against testicular cancer. #supportyourballs
For companies like Tommy John the comfort and well being of men is their main focus. Whether it’s through their partnership with the Testicular Cancer Foundation, or with their comfortable base layers supporting the men in our lives is always a priority. Inspired by this, I decided today to focus on the men in our life, and show how they can be proactive about their health through different stages of their life and maybe we can give them a kick start too.
It’s that time of year. Relax, I don’t mean it’s the “holiday” frenzy time of year. I mean it’s the time of year where men of all ages embrace their inner hipster and grow a shaggy mustache during the month of November. All in the name of charity, of course.
Over the years, the Movember Foundation has raised a lot of money, and that’s great. But because of its focus on ostensibly masculine afflictions, those funds aren’t always going where they’re needed most. They’ve dedicated tens of millions of dollars to prostate cancer research, and though charity isn’t a zero-sum game, it’s hard not to wonder whether those funds might have done more good if they’d gone toward a less manly but more deadly ailment—like lung cancer.
For decades, testicular cancer has been mired in myth. Take, for example, the silly notion that riding a bicycle can cause testicular cancer. With a little common sense, ridiculous myths like this are easily discounted. But sometimes, deciphering the truth is not so simple. Thankfully, AskMen is here to dispel five of the most common testicular cancer myths.
Testicular Cancer is the number one cancer killer of young men 15 through 35 years of age. Yet it is one of the least talked about forms of cancer and because of this the mortality rate is very high. Testicular cancer is very successfully treated if caught early but you need to know the early warning signs!
As an official global charity, Movember’s vision is to have an everlasting impact on the face of men’s health. During November each year, Movember is responsible for the sprouting of millions of moustaches on men's faces around the world. Through the power of the Mo, vital funds and awareness are raised to combat prostate and testicular cancer and mental health challenges.
Orchid exists to save men's lives from testicular, prostate and penile cancers through pioneering research and promoting awareness.

There will be nearly 9,000 new cases of Testicular Cancer diagnosed
during 2013 and 380 young men will die from the disease
because they didn't catch it in time. That is more deaths than
women in this age group who will die of breast cancer.
