Dear James87, 

 

I’m sorry to read your partner has been diagnosed with testicular cancer, it must have been a shock for you both.  As you say the not knowing is the worst part, and it is normal to think the worst of the situation, many people feel the same way.  I have attached a link below with information on coping with a cancer diagnosis, if you would like to speak with a nurse for any support or advice about your situation, please call the cancer Nurseline on 1800200700.
