THIS COULD SAVE A MANS LIFE... THIS STORY POSTED BY A GUY ON REDDIT REALLY AMAZED ME. BASICALLY HE WAS IN HIS BATHROOM ONE DAY AND FOUND HIS EX GIRLFRIENDS PREGNANCY TEST KIT. FOR A BIT OF A LAUGH HE DECIDED TO PEE ON IT. TO HIS UTTER SHOCK AND SUPRISE, THE RESULTS CAME UP WITH 2 LINES AS PER THE IMAGE BELOW. THIS AS WE ALL KNOW BASICALLY MEANS HE IS PREGNANT RIGHT? WELL OBVIOUSLY HE IS NOT PREGNANT BUT HE THOUGHT IT WAS REALLY FUNNY ANYWAY. HE TOOK TO REDDIT WHERE HE POSTED THE PICTURE. IN THE COMMENTS SOMEONE SAID "IF THIS IS TRUE, YOU SHOULD CHECK YOURSELF FOR TESTICULAR CANCER" AND THAT HE NEEDED TO GET TO HIS GP AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. IT WAS LUCKY THAT THIS CHAIN OF EVENTS HAPPENED AS WHEN HIS GP CHECKED HIM OVER, IT TURNED OUT THAT HE HAD TESTICULAR CANCER. HE WAS FORTUNATE ENOUGH TO CATCH IT IN THE EARLY STAGES. SO WHAT IS GOING ON HERE? WELL THE PREGNANCY TEST IS ACTUALLY LOOKING FOR SOMETHING CALLED HUMAN CHORIONIC GONADOTROPIN HCG. THIS IS PRODUCED IN THE PLACENTA OF A WOMAN AND IS THUS A GOOD TEST OF PREGNANCY. IT TURNS OUT THAT HCG IS ALSO PRODUCED BY MEN WHO SUFFER FROM TESTICULAR CANCER.
