St. Luke’s Urologists Raise Awareness of Testicular Cancer
Doctors Emphasize Importance of Monthly Checks
DULUTH, Minn. – This month doctors around the world are bringing light to a disease not often talked about.
April is Testicular Cancer Awareness Month, so Dr. Rebekah Beach, a Urologist with St. Luke’s Urology Associates, visited FOX 21 to talk about this cancer.
Dr. Beach says this is the most common cancer among men ages 15-44.
According to the Testicular Cancer Awareness Foundation, if it’s detected early it has a survival rate of more than 95%.
The month is a time designated to raising awareness about it and encouraging monthly self-exams.
A social media campaign is underway to encourage men to get out and exercise and to conduct monthly checks.
Use the hashtag #goballsout to participate.
