Ben's story: Using my testicular cancer experience to help others

1 minute read time

At the age of 24, Ben was diagnosed with testicular cancer. Within three days of the diagnosis, he underwent surgery. Three rounds of chemotherapy followed that.

At the time, he had no idea what he was in for. And as he looked around the room during his chemotherapy treatment, there was no one his age who he could relate to.

Now, armed with the first-hand experience of what it’s like to go through testicular cancer, Ben has signed up to be a guide for Nuts & Bolts - an online resource developed by Movember to help guys with testicular cancer.

As a guide, Ben is able to connect with other guys facing a testicular cancer diagnosis to talk, listen and share his experience.

Ben’s message: Testicular cancer is a super curable cancer, but it’s not going to be cured if you don’t know you have it.
