Orchid: 'What is testicular cancer?' — lesson plan for KS4-5



This lesson from Orchid, for key stage 4 and 5 students, aims to increase young people’s understanding of testicular cancer and their confidence in seeking help and support if needed — by outlining possible risk factors, signs and symptoms, and highlighting the importance of self-examination.

Through a video stimulus and range of interactive activities, students learn how to:

  • explain what testicular cancer is
  • describe the signs and symptoms of testicular cancer
  • identify possible risk factors
  • explain how to perform a testicular examination and what to do if a problem is suspected

This pack is free to download and includes teacher guidance, a lesson plan and accompanying resources to aid delivery, as well as a take-away summary fact sheet for students.


PSHE Association Subject Specialist Liz Laming says:
We are delighted to award our Quality Mark to Orchid’s ‘What is testicular cancer?’ resource. The engaging activities provide the opportunity for students to explore the facts about testicular cancer and other conditions, and gain a clear understanding of how to perform self-examination and seek help and support when appropriate, overcoming potential barriers to doing so. This resource will support teachers to deliver this important aspect of the PSHE curriculum, and help them to meet the statutory Health Education requirement that students know the benefits of regular self-examination and screening.
