    "Testicular cancer typically develops in one or both testicles in young men, but it can occur in older men as well. It is a highly treatable and usually curable type of cancer."

    OK, guys, time to check 'em. Don't be shy.

    You guys in the UK, here you go:

    In the scheme of things, testicular cancer is one of the rarest cancers. BUT it's the most common cancer occurring in young men (that's probably your age group - 15 to 40 ish). It happens in about 2000 men per year in the UK. The good news is that it's one of the most curable cancers, especially if caught early.

    Yep and just had a physical including the 'ball check' as well as a prostate check, colonoscapy set for next week. First time my female GP had done this. A bit odd discussing vacation plans while bent over and her finger up my butt.

    FYI about the colonoscopy - wake up early to make sure you're "ready" and know your route ahead of time in case you need to "stop"!
    It's not bad - they knock you out, you feel nothing.
