When a man discovered one of his ex-girlfriend’s pregnancy tests still sitting in his cabinet, he decided to take it. Whether it was just for fun or to symbolically exact revenge on his ex, we’ll never know. After he tested his urine, something happened he never expected: the test was positive. He told a friend about this strange (and frankly confusing) story. His friend decided it was hilarious, so made the story into a comic and posted it online.
That test may have saved his life.
As it turns out, home pregnancy tests may detect testicular cancer. These pregnancy tests detect beta human chorionic gonadotropin. This is an indicator of pregnancy, but also testicular cancer.
The man who took the test went to the doctor and discovered that yes, he had a small tumor in his right testicle.
Pregnancy tests may not detect cancer in all cases, but if any man takes a test and it is positive, they should probably go to a doctor. Also, it may be a good idea for them to stop peeing on random items in the house.
Now men can feel the anxiety and impatience that all women feel when they take a pregnancy test, so share this with others.
