This April, the Movember Foundation is encouraging guys and their partners to get to ‘Know thy Nuts’. The mission of Testicular Cancer Awareness Month is to educate the country about what’s normal and most importantly, what’s not.
Though not always seen as such, testicular cancer is very much a young man’s disease and is most common in men aged 15-34.
Many men either never check their testicles, or don’t know how to perform a self-examination, making it all the more critical that awareness around the issue is improved. In a ballsy move, the Movember Foundation has created a limited edition ‘Know Thy Nuts’ soap-on-a-rope! It is the perfect shower partner for any man, to help spread awareness while raising vital funds for men’s health.
Neil Rooney, Movember country manager says: “While testicular cancer is the most common cancer in young men, it’s largely overlooked and many men simply aren’t aware of the signs they need to look out for. As the leading foundation for men’s health in Ireland, Movember is going balls-out for Testicular Cancer Awareness Month and asking guys and their partners to #KnowThyNuts.”
Movember is encouraging guys to check themselves to see if they notice any lumps, pain or swelling, and to see a doctor if necessary.

In addition to tackling key physical health issues faced by men, the Foundation is committed to encouraging men to stay healthy in all areas of their life, with a focus on men staying socially connected, becoming more open to discussing their health and significant moments in their lives.
