I was all ready to write a light-hearted post full of silly puns to share some facts about testicular cancer and the ease and importance of monthly self-exams.
But then I got the news that a young man I know was just diagnosed with testicular cancer. He's scheduled for immediate surgery. He'll find out next week if the cancer has spread.
Suddenly this post feels very personal and urgent, so I'll just get straight to the facts.
Awkward conversation? You're not alone in feeling that way (watch the video). But it's so important and so easy…and it might save the life of a young man.
