HC Deb 10 April 2002 vol 383 cc424-5W
Mr. Burns

To ask the Secretary of State for Health if he will make a statement as to what measures are being taken to raise awareness of testicular cancer and the importance of self-checking, with specific reference to men aged under 35 years. [46761]

Yvette Cooper

The consensus among health professionals is that promoting testicular awareness is the most effective way to tackle this disease. The Department contributed to the recent production of Cancer Research UK's leaflet "Testicular Cancer—spot the symptoms". Copies are available in the Library and will soon be available on both Cancer Research UK's and the Department's websites.
