Is that mis-spelling of "ado" a hint or is it just a mis-spelling?
Thanks for the heads up YT.
Only a spelling mistake.

Funny how things can be seen or perceived as they were never intended to be.

All the best to Jesse.

Did his dad die from cancer?

They got it early and there will be a press conference @ 9.45 , so fingers crossed as they found a lump.

Melbourne have released a statement that said its at its earliest detectable stage - and an MRI has shown no cancer anywhere else - so it seems he's about as well placed as he can be. They also said they expect him to make a full recovery.
He's going into surgery immediately to have it removed. Hopefully all goes well.

its a seminoma which is the most common form and is slow growing. My urologist said I'd had mine for at least 6 months and my right testicle was at least 75% tumour before I was diagnosed. even then it hadn't spread (although there were initial concerns that it had). He will have to undergo more tests (eg PET scan) to be sure it hasn't spread, but I expect Jesse Hogan will be fine. Infact I reckon he will play again this year.

Tell us the real symptoms Bin, not the bullshit GPs and articles give us. I wanna hear from a bloke who's actually experienced it.

Its actually quite easy to diagnose if you know what you're looking for. But the reality is that people don't know what to look for. The main symptom is hardness of the testis. testicles are very soft, so if they feel hard or swollen that's when you need to get checked out. an ultrasound is enough to diagnose it and CT scan to confirm it.

I didn't notice any hardness coz I didn't think to check. I just woke up in the middle of the night with some discomfort, then realised there was some swelling. In hindsight, I was tired a lot in the previous months leading up to it and not quite feeling myself.

its a young man's disease with most people being diagnosed between the ages of 18-40. The main cause (the vast majority) is when people's balls drop late (AKA hit puberty later than the average boy). I was diagnosed 2 months before my 39th birthday, which is very late. my "balls dropping late" was not a cause for me. While I can't prove it, I suspect the cause was my mobile phone. I always place my mobile phone in my front right pocket. and it was my right testicle. I asked my oncologist and he couldn't rule it in or out.

The surgery itself was OK. I took 6 weeks off work, but I was right to go after a month (doctor was being extra cautious). But losing an aggot does play on your ego, I can't deny that. the whole emasculation thing does have a psychological effect on you. But it does wear off when you become sexually active again and you have practical proof that you still work down there.

there were also suspicions that the cancer had spread because one of the lymph nodes near my kidney had enlarged. But the PET Scan proved there was no hot spot in that area. and over the course of the next few months, the lymph node shrank. Turns out the cancer had caused inflammation in the lymph node. Big relief I'll tell ya.

I'll tell you one thing that is true though... dogs can detect it. I was sleeping at my partners place the night I woke up with the discomfort. she was dog sitting a friend's dog. and when I arrived she jumped straight into my crotch. I pushed her away a few times but she kept coming back. she knew.

Thank you Ian for sharing. I imagine it would take a lot of courage to both confront this insidious disease and also tell your story.

I feel really sorry for Jessie as he's just getting himself up and running.

And to Ian.....well done for sharing your story. I had a recent scare that I was concerned was the same. However the swelling and discomfort disappeared in a week or two and was more groin than nut. Dr's still don't know what caused it. It was a scary thing to think about. Glad you pulled through.
