"Excellent care after diagnosis of testicular cancer"

About: Wythenshawe Hospital / Urology

(as a relative),

My husband was seen quickly with a testicular lump by Mr Sangar in one of his outpatient clinics at Withington Hospital. Nr Sangar advised us that he was certain it was testicular cancer.

My husband was quickly referred that same morning for all the pre-operation tests. All the tests were performed that morning at the community clinic and the chest x-ray was sent electronically to the consultant. The team were so organised and had him admitted three days later for surgery. The speed of the service was fantastic and everyone was so focused on providing an excellent service.

Mr Sangar's secretary was really helpful and efficient. The Mcmillian Cancer Nurses were so caring. They even phoned us on route to the hospital to tell us the result of some blood tests and came to the ward on serveral occasions to offer my husband support.

The lump was later confirmed as cancer, and my husband and I are so pleased about the prompt service that the hospital put in place especially as it had spread to his lymph glands and he was then able to get treated at the Christies with chemotherapy. When you think you have cancer it is really frightening and you really appreciate a fast caring service that knows exactly what they are doing.
