My husband was heading into surgery, he was having a radical inguinal orchiectomy or testicle removal for short. A few weeks before all this we found a lump and went to the doctor to get things check out. He was only 28. After surgery we learned that it was in fact testicular cancer and it was stage two it had spread to the lymph nodes in his lower abdomen. a month later we started chemo five days in a row for eight hours each every third week four times. We did beat the cancer and so far we are still cancer free.
This cancer affects so many men and many dont get help soon enough :(. Testicular cancer is the most curable form of cancer but its also the most deadly. So now that we have survived this I want to help save others. Most times the lump is found by a spouse or girlfriend not the man why because no one tells them to do monthly checks like we are told to do with our breast. We have met and lost so many others along our journey and it needs to stop. Please tell your sons brothers fathers and so to do their checks and if anything feels out of place go get it checked. the soon you get it checked better. early detection could mean you keep the ball and your life.
BE BOLD check your husbands balls, early detection is the key to saving a life
