Testicular Cancer primarily affects young adult men and, fortunately, is very treatable. In most cases, it is curable, but self-exam is key for early diagnosis. For professional baseball player, Connor Joe, cancer was discovered in 2020 during a physical exam while in Spring Training with the Los Angeles Dodgers. Following surgery with Dr. Mark Litwin, Chair of UCLA Urology, and chemotherapy, Connor is cancer-free and playing baseball with the Colorado Rockies. Joe now hopes to use his platform to raise awareness about testicular cancer among young men. Watch and read Connor's story >
