Now that I've got your attention, read this: Breast cancer is justifiably a very high-profile issue, and millions are spent world-wide to raise the awareness. However............... As a result of an ad-campaign that was run in the UK a few years back, I became aware of the dangers of testicular cancer and regularly 'checked myself out', so to speak. 18 months ago I discovered a small lump in one ball, decided to get it checked out, and yes, it was cancerous. I susequently lost one ball and underwent a course of radiotherapy and eventually got a clean bill of health. The worrying thing is: 1. There was absolutely no pain before I discovered the lump 2. I have never seen any public awareness adverts in Aus 3. It had started to spread, so if I hadn't discovered it when I did, I probably wouldn't be here now So................ Check them out chaps. In the shower, at least once a month, have a feel around. You probably won't find anything, but when you do, at least you'll realise straight away. It may be a small hard lump, often the size of a pea. Mine was just an 'unusual' feeling lump. Don't wait for pain - it doesn't always hurt. When you find something, don't piss around - get it checked out immediately. Afterwards, you'll be back at work within 2-3 weeks (although radiotherapy isn't much of a giggle) and will have full use of all your tackle. Everything works as it did before, and frankly I never really liked the left one anyway. End of Public Announcement. Get back to biking, but check them out, OK?
