About us
We’re a Scottish charity dedicated to raising awareness about testicular cancer. We’re here to shout the benefits of education and self-checks!

Early detection means more effective treatment. Regular checks are important for every man you know. And every man needs to know what to look for.

You’ll find us doing our work at schools, colleges, community hubs and events. We want to get everyone talking — and checking!

Education &
awareness talks

We want testicular health to be talked about openly and self-checks to be part of everyone’s monthly routine. At events, workplaces and education establishments, we share our message about the symptoms of testicular cancer and how to check for them.

Contact us for more info. We’re always happy to come and talk balls!



We have lots of free resources for you to download: including education materials, our Self-Check Guide and a Self-Check poster to help you spread the word!

We run award-winning marketing campaigns to raise awareness of testicular cancer. From our inaugural #TartanChecks to the annual #CheckYerBawballs, our campaigns have reached more than 100 million people online, garnered support from a host of celebrities and got the nation talking balls for the past three years running.
