10 years ago, on this day, I was in a hospital having a cancerous growth removed from my right testicle. 10 years ago today, I became a cancer survivor. In honor of my 10 year anniversary, I wanted to highlight a few players who are also testicular cancer survivors.
I was lucky. I caught it early enough to where I didn't need chemotherapy. Because of this, I encourage others to perform regular self examinations. Since most of my readership is male, that includes you. I'm providing information to help you learn what to check for. Do yourself a favor and read it. Check yourself. It doesn't take long to do, and it could save your life.
