Mark Curlewis Survives Testicular Cancer at 30

Marc Curlewis was looking forward to celebrating his 30th birthday. After all, one only hits the big ‘three-oh’ once. However, five days before his birthday, he received devastating news.

The Diagnosis

Marc had been experiencing some discomfort in his right testicle and decided to go and get it checked out. At first, his doctor thought it was an infection, but when a month long course of antibiotics did nothing to relieve the pain and discomfort; she referred him to an urologist.

After running a few tests, the urologist informed Marc that he suspected testicular cancer. So, with very little time for the news to sink in, Marc was booked to undergo surgery immediately. Although he did not know what to expect, Marc was hopeful and tried to remain positive.
