This amazed me and can save a man’s life!
This story posted by a guy on Reddit who was in his bathroom one day and found his ex girlfriends pregnancy test kit. And he decided to pee on it. To his utter shock and surprise, the results came up with 2 lines as per the image on top. Was he pregnant? Well, obviously not! and for more laugh he posted the picture on Reddit.
Somebody commented the picture with the following: “If this is true, you should check yourself for testicular cancer” and should get to his GP as soon as possible.
It was lucky this chain of events happened! As when his GP checked him over, it turned out that he had testicular cancer, but just 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. OMG, Reddit is sometimes so useful!!!
