A man who takes a pregnancy test jokingly, learns he has testicular cancer from Reddit users

8 Comments

Who would have thought that a ‘rage comic’ above could lead to an early detection of a testicular cancer?

A Reddit user CappnPoopdeck last week jokingly takes an unused pregnancy test left behind by his ex-girlfriend and realized that the results went positive. To his amusement, he posted a comic that seems to be hilarious for some, but bothering to other Reddit users who have a little or much knowledge about the matter. This has gained a lot of attention among Redditors and comments flooded. One comment reads, “If this is true, you should check yourself for testicular cancer. Seriously. Google it,”

The second comic just shows how he took the pieces of advice from concerned Redittors seriously. Sad to say, the test for a testicular problem by a doctor also came back positive. According to abc news, Pregnancy tests detect beta human chorionic gonadotropin, a hormone in the blood and the urine produced by the developing placenta. Experts say beta hCG can also signal testicular cancer. While a positive pregnancy test can be a fluky clue, the first sign of testicular cancer is usually a painless lump.

Looking at the brighter side, he’s lucky enough to have known his condition earlier by chance. But the man might have one of his testicles removed. If he hadn’t been that curious on trying such funny ideas, such as trying out a pregnancy test and posting the results online, the results could’ve been more serious. Intrusiveness of the internet has a positive effect after all.
