Testicular Cancer Awareness Month
April 1 – April 30 CDT
Testicular Cancer Awareness Month is observed in April. Testicular Cancer Awareness Month is observed in concert with the long-recognized Testicular Cancer Awareness Week, which starts on April 1st.
What is the color for testicular cancer?
The Testicular Cancer Society recognizes royal blue as its official testicular cancer awareness color. There has been much debate about the color for testicular cancer awareness and ribbons.
Orchid has long been recognized as the official color for testicular cancer. There have also been references to yellow, which appears to be in part due to Lance Armstrong’s testicular cancer diagnosis and formation of the former Lance Armstrong Foundation. However, the now named, LIVESTRONG Foundation, represents all cancers and not just testicular cancer.
However, any color that one chooses to use is acceptable as long as you are raising awareness for testicular cancer. After all, a color is just a color but awareness saves men’s lives.
