    My boss told me a sad and hard-hitting story of a friend of his who discovered on Friday evening that he had a cancerous growth on his lungs that on first examination appeared to be a result of Hodgekinsons disease. He was told that the cancer was in his lungs and was pretty well untreatable.

    Happily, however, further examination has shown that it is in fact a different breed of cancer entirely, one that is very treatable and likely to be eradicated without difficulty. I don't have all the details on exactly what it is, but the news is good.

    The childishly amusing thing, however, is that the tumerous growth apparently is known as the rare condition extragonadal growth. Essentially, he's growing balls on his chest. Testicular cells are in majoritive evidence in the tumor.

    And my boss won't stop cracking jokes.

    A brief article explaining the effect of hormone-producing cells in tumors.

    Huh. Thanks, robin. I was able to access the article to get the link without trouble, no login required. Not a site I've ever been to before, so thats odd.

    Anyhow, it was only vaguely relevant. I posted this in my lunchbreak, so I wasn't exactly in a position to have a full heavy scientific discourse of any intellectual degree, or to find any links of a particularly relevant nature. I just really needed to get the phrase "chesticular cancer" out onto the web as quickly as possible =D

    it's not uncommon for tumors to develop teeth and hair and things...

    Someone tell George Bush so that he can harvest the tumor’s stem cells and save another embryo from destruction!

    So... many... jokes... in head... rupturiiiiinnggggah!

    I saw a stand-up do a set about his cancer experiences. He was diagnosed with an easily treatable variety that caused him no problems, but the way people treated him led to some funny stories.

    a cancerous growth on his lungs . . .Testicular cells


    So you most definitely DON'T want this guy coughing in your direction.

    Hey, there's a making of a really bad episode of House or CSI in this story. ("Wait, you're telling me that she got pregnant because he sneezed while he was . . .")

    Sounds like something out of a Garth Ennis comic.

    It was the thread we had to have, really. Inevitable.

    Feel free to use it in whichever twisted way you please.

    You know, thinking about it, there has got to be someone with like a pussy on their head or something weird like that.

    why does this remind me of an episode of The Burning Zone... I'm probably the only person who remembers that show, actually...

    God this is so gloriously grotesque...

    This just epitomizes Whitechapel right here.

    Thanks...now I've got that ACDC song stuck in my head.






    ...And he's got big balls,
    And she's got big balls,
    But we've got the biggest
    balls of them all!
