Talking about testicular cancer
This page is about talking about testicular cancer.
Talking about your feelings can be difficult especially if they are to do with very personal problems such as sex or worry about rejection. It might be difficult at first. But many men find that once they start to talk openly with their partners, their fears of being rejected are unjustified. You may even feel closer after talking through a problem with your partner.
