check yourself

Yesterday I found out I probably had testicular cancer. Today I had it surgically removed. The doctor said there is generally a >99% cure rate. I think things will work out fine.

Testicular cancer usually occurs in men between the ages of 18 and 35. It has a high level of treatability, but also a high level of growth. Early detection and treatment is key. If you are a male, perform self-exams on a regular basis and see your doctor if you notice anything unusual.
