Greetings from the Pathology Samples Jar.
I may be gone, but I am not forgotten. Three years ago today, I was a relatively happy testicle. I lived in a warm and comforting place, and was treated quite well. The problem was, that I would occasionally ache and cause my host a tremendous amount of discomfort. It turns out that I was being invaded. I never knew. I was a happy and warm testicle, and poof! I was being kicked out of my own home. It seems this cancerous leech had attached itself to me, and was slowly and surely kicking me out of my own house. It was devastating, to say the least.
So, on this day 3 yrs ago, my host, the esteemed OBM, was put under the knife and I, along with some inguinal lymph nodes, were rudely removed and sent to the pathology lab. Turns out that I was really mostly a tumor. I'd been moved in on and was in danger of wrecking the whole works.
Check your nuts. Here's a fun video that will explain the facts and how to check the lads.
So, lads, check your nuts. Srsly, it is easy, and as the video shows, you can even have someone near and dear to you help out.
Oh! And for you ladies, and you know we love you, do your monthly self-exams. It is easy and can save your life.
