Is it a boy? Is it a girl?
Nope, it’s cancer.
Last week, Reddit user CappnPoopdeck created a ‘rage cartoon’ depicting his friend’s decision to pee on an unused pregnancy which came back positive.
Ending the cartoon with a simple “I’m pregnant,” the cartoon quickly sparked over 4000 comments from Reddit users showing concern and criticism for the creator. With one typical comment reading, “If this is true, you should check yourself for testicular cancer. Seriously. Google it,” the Reddit community has exploded with personal stories, test results and insight behind the issues of male cancer.
CappnPoopdeck has since released a follow up cartoon that both apologizes and gives a personal story behind the cartoon. After reading through the comments, CappnPoopdeck’s friend visited his doctor — who found a tumor in his right testicle.
Explaining the positive pregnancy test, which was picking up the hormone being secreted by the tumor, this newest cartoon advocates self-exams for men and women along with links to resources. From zero to hero, we can’t help but give CappnPoopdeck a slap on the back for both giving us a little bit more faith in the users of social media and through his cartoon, saving a testicle or two.
