            • Sweeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeet!
              Painless lump 5/18/2017
              Orchidectomy June 2017 (4.5cm, rete testis involvement)
              Chemo Summer 2017 (2x7AUC carboplatin)
              No evidence of relapse since, but plenty of anxiety about it.

              I'm also an epidemiologist, and a professor at a medical school (with NO training in oncology), oh, and gay, too.
