Re: Testicular cancer
I'm a cancer researcher.
testicular cancer tends to be very responsive to current chemotherapy, even after it metastasizes. Lance Armstrong's really the big example-- he had mets that went to his brain, but responded very well to chemo and went on to a huge cycling career.
You never want to get any cancer, but if I had a gun to my head and had to choose one, this is a good one to pick.
key point: some young men get so depressed by disease and cost of treatment that they blow it all off. That's a bad idea, especially for a treatable disease.
ATTACK IT! give it everything you've got and then a bit more.
