Testicular Cancer: Screening

Volume 472: debated on Tuesday 26 February 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Health what steps the Government have taken to promote screening for testicular cancer. (188541)

There is no effective screening method for testicular cancer, therefore no action has been taken to promote screening for testicular cancer.

Testicular cancer is almost always curable if found early and the Department has collaborated with Cancer Research UK in the production of a testicular self-awareness leaflet, “Testicular Cancer: Spot The Symptoms Early”. Over 300,000 copies of this leaflet are printed each year.
