  • Man Takes Pregnancy Test as Joke, Finds Testicular Tumor

    We've discussed this idea before here but wasn't the sensitivity of those devices thought the be poor for detecting HCG from tumours? Well, seems to have worked for this guy:

    Man Takes Pregnancy Test as Joke, Finds Testicular Tumor

    A Reddit post about a man's positive pregnancy test appears to have alerted him to a testicular tumor.

    The man, whose name has not been made public, was shocked to see two pink lines after jokingly taking the test, which had been left in his bathroom cabinet by an ex-girlfriend.

    The strange scene was drawn out as a comic and submitted to the website Reddit, where it drew more than 1,300 comments in three days from concerned strangers.

    100% classical seminoma (I-A, RTI). Surveillance (no adjuvant therapy). 4 years all-clear and hoping for many more.

    The actual comic appears in Huffington Post, and the reply about TC. Getting the word out!
