Cancer Research UK has released figures showing that 310 men are diagnosed with testicular cancer in the South East each year. There are around 2,300 cases nationally every year.
Now, more than 96% of patients survive the illness, compared to fewer than 70% in the 1970s.
Survival rates for testicular cancer have risen by almost 30 per cent in the last 40 years. The better rates of survival have been attributed to research into the condition.
