Through our education and awareness programme (we visit schools, colleges, workplaces, sports clubs and the community) Cahonas is committed programme to ensuring all cases of Testicular Cancer are diagnosed at the earliest stage possible, where treatment is more effective and survival rates higher.

Cahonas deliver an emotional and wellbeing programme offering telephone and in person support with support and help from Cahonas staff and volunteers who have a lived experience of Testicular Cancer.

We also run our "You've Got This" Cancer Care Pack project to support every patient in Scotland going through the trauma of Testicular Cancer Treatment.
