Rage comic ends with real-life testicular cancer diagnosis11/8/2012
Rage comics: They're not just crudely illustrated tales of the irritating ironies of modern life. A recent one apparently helped a man discover he had testicular cancer. He decided to pee on a pregnancy test (nothing unusual about that), and was baffled when it returned a positive result. When his friend turned the story into a rage comic and posted it to Reddit, commenters pointed out that pregnancy tests detect hormones that can be indicators of testicular cancer. The man visited an oncologist, who found "a very small tumor" on his right testicle. (Being Reddit, the story might be made up — but it is true that testicular cancer can be diagnosed via pregnancy test.) "If you are a male check yourself for testicular cancer regularly," cautioned a follow-up rage comic. [Source]
