Former radio host tells of cancer scare on ‘This Is Me’ podcast
Craig Evans was diagnosed with testicular cancer five weeks ago, at the time he was hosting a breakfast radio show as well as studying to be a lawyer.
Evans joins the This Is Me podcast, out through Podshape, and tells the story about when he had to share the news with his co-host Siobhan.
Doctors told him he had to get one of his testicles removed, and it was a huge shock, but necessary to save his life.
“I was doing burpees at the gym when I noticed one of my plums was bigger than it should be, I thought it was weird but I didn’t worry about it,” Evans said.
“I told my girlfriend and she said go and get it checked out. Within days I was booked in to have it removed”
Craig is also dealing with life as a new father, but is extremely thankful the issue was caught early.
He appears on the first episode of the new season of This is Me to give a first-hand account of his life changing moment.
“I’ve known Craig for a number of years and he was always a positive and funny bloke with the world at his feet, when we heard of his story we wanted to make sure we could help share his story and encourage other young blokes to give themselves a check,” Jay Walkerden – Head Shaper at Podshape said.
Like all of the other podcasts in the This is Me series – this episode will promote Craig’s chosen charity which is Movember.
This year Movember are not only supporting mental health and suicide prevention, prostate cancer but also testicular cancer.
Testicular cancer is the most common cancer in young men.
This Is Me series two is available from Monday, September 7, wherever you get your podcasts.
