Man Takes Home Pregnancy Test And The Results Save His Life
Men do stupid things. Sometimes when we do those stupid things it turns out really bad. Every once in a while it turns out okay and sometimes it's like the Almighty is looking out for us because miracles do happen.
As a goof, a man, whose name was not made public, decided to urinate on a home pregnancy test that was left in his bathroom. The test was left behind by a formal girlfriend and the man thought it would be funny to take the test and post the results on social media.
Imagine his surprise when the test came back positive. That's right the test showed that he was "pregnant". As you might imagine our prankster couldn't pass up the chance to display that on social media. It was thru the some 1300 plus comments on his post that he got the shock of his life.
One person who commented on his post suggested strongly that he get to a doctor immediately. There were several others who made similar comments. Almost all of the comments indicated that a positive result on a home pregnancy test when taken by a male could be a strong indicator of testicular cancer.
The reason,as reported by ABC News, a positive test is a result of the detection of 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.
After seeing his doctor the unnamed man was informed that he did was in fact in the very early stages of testicular cancer. Since his condition was detected so early he was treated and appears to be well on his way to making a full recovery.
