Protect Your Own

Protect Your Own Testicular Cancer Awareness Campaign

Did you know...

Firefighters appear to be at higher risk of developing testicular cancer than the general population.

Helping Keep Our Heroes Healthy

We can't thank First Responders and Military enough for keeping us safe but we also hope you
Protect Your Own.

Testicular cancer is the leading cause of cancer in guys age 15-35. If detected and treated at an early stage it is over 99% curable. However, late stage diagnosis leads to larger treatment burdens and unfortunate loss of life. 

 

Monthly testicular self-exams may be your best tool for
early detection.


We understand, when you're busy protecting lives you may not have the time to be thinking about your balls. Our Protect Your Own campaign helps raise awareness about testicular cancer and reminds you to find the time, as well.

 

Important First Steps to Protect Your Own:
Clean Your Gear & Check Your Gear

 

Help Us Raise Awareness

We invite San Diego area firefighters to post a photo of their squad on Instagram or Facebook using #protectyourown and @tcsociety and @manscaped.

MANSCAPED™ will send your squad free t-shirts and will also select a winning photo from the entries to receive free MANSCAPED™ trimmers.
