Is there 1 testicle in this picture or 2?
Hi! This is Matt, Amanda’s husband. For Movember, she invited me to her blog to share my experience with testicular cancer. Two years ago, a tiny lump on my testicle changed my life. I always had a cordial and generally playful relationship with my right teste (henceforth referred to as Righty for the remainder of this blog post [RIP Righty 1988–2015]), and despite my extensive/expensive education and career in healthcare (I work as a physical therapist in a hospital), I never performed self-checks. For such a seemingly consequential life event, I don’t actually remember any initial earth-shattering discovery of the pea-sized lump on Righty. What eventually led me to actually get a professional’s eyes on my balls was that it was such a dense firmness and that it seemed to be popping up right out of Righty’s head.
