It’s in the Bag - the United Kingdom

Testicular Cancer Charity of the Year 2020

It’s in the Bag are a charity who provide hands-on support for men with testicular cancer in the South-West, as well as raising awareness of the disease across the region and beyond.

It’s in the Bag is run by a group of testicular cancer survivors with support from specialist NHS staff. We have three simple aims:

1. Support
Being diagnosed with testicular cancer and going through treatment is a huge challenge – physically, mentally and emotionally. We provide a range of activities and initiatives to help men through this tough time.

2. Awareness
We teach men the importance of checking their balls regularly and taking any issues straight to their GP. Spreading this knowledge promotes earlier diagnosis, which often means simpler, more effective treatment and better chances of a cure.

3.Survival
With UK cure rates for testicular cancer running above 98%, we focus on survival – helping guys tackle the emotional and practical impact of cancer, both during treatment and beyond.
