Big month ahead for It’s In The Bag Cancer Support

It’s all go for It’s in the Bag Cancer Support as the charity gears up for a busy month of awareness during April, the official testicular cancer awareness month.

It’s Match Fit campaign, originally launched in 2018 with seven ball sports and the catchphrase “are your balls match-fit?”, will be targeting clubs and teams in Somerset to push the awareness message.

Recently, Exeter Chiefs star Henry Slade started the ball rolling by taking part in an awareness video and the charity is also working with tennis clubs, hockey teams, Bath FC, golf clubs and has even managed to contact Bristol-born Rob Milkins, who is at the snooker world championships.

Testicular cancer is the most common cancer of 15 to 49-year-old men, but it also affects younger and older men. More than 96% of men who have been diagnosed with testicular cancer will survive, but early detection is crucial. It’s in the Bag encourages men aged 15 and older to self-check every month and to talk to their GP immediately if they discover anything unusual.

It’s in the Bag offers support to men across the South West who have been diagnosed with testicular cancer.

It also raises awareness of testicular cancer and the importance of regular self-checking. Visit to find out more.
