not too bad

Yesterday I was injected with dye and scanned and x-rayed. It turns out I don't have anything urgent to worry about. The extracted cancer was seminoma, the most common form of testicular cancer, and it is extremely susceptible to radiation treatment. I will have radiation therapy to zap any lingering cells and then a few years of regular followup visits. "It's a scary thing to hear you have cancer," the urologist said, "but everything's going to be fine for you." Good deal!
