Being diagnosed with testicular cancer can flip your life upside down. Fast. We’re here to ease your uncertainty and help you make informed decisions from diagnosis, through treatment, and into life beyond.
Whether you need reliable information, have questions about what to do next, or want to hear from others who’ve been on the journey, we’ve got your back.
What’s it like to have testicular cancer? While no two journeys are the same, there are some routine stops along the way. Take a look at what you can probably expect, and what health professionals you'll need to work with.
Want to talk to someone who gets it? We've got you.
All guides have either had testicular cancer themselves, or they’ve played a more supportive role (like a family member, friend or caregiver). They’re ready and waiting to give support — whether it’s having a chat and laugh, or a more serious conversation.
Nuts & Bolts is for you, wherever you’re at in your testicular cancer journey. Our resources have been created with the help of guys who’ve experienced this thing firsthand. Who best to learn from than those who’ve been there before?
Our approach to creating tools that help you tackle testicular cancer are based on research, real-life stories and lots of testing.
We spoke to men, their supporters, and doctors from around the world. These findings set the scene for our tools and resources.
Diagnosis is tough. We heard that guys needed a lot of support at this time. But for many, life after surgery was also tough – they felt anxious, isolated and uneasy about what the future held. That’s why our tools are designed for men at all stages in the journey.
We tested out a bunch of ideas before settling on Nuts & Bolts: the solution that resonated the most.
