It's a well known cliche that men can be hesitant when it comes to looking after their own health, especially when they are worried about a particularly personal problem.
But as April is Testicular Cancer Awareness Month, it seems only right that we all have a frank discussion about what exactly is happening below the belt.
The Quicky speaks to a comedian who draws on his experience surviving testicular cancer, and an expert in testicular health about what men and women should look out for, and how you know when a man needs to see a doctor.
