I've recently started my application to join the army and now just waiting for my selection date; but today i was told i have testicular cancer. I have asked the online careers office whether this would prevent me from joining, and the response had conflicting answers. If the cancer is cured will i be eligible for service? (The treatment means i have to have the testicle removed (bummer)). Sorry if this feels like a question more suited to an agony aunt column.
