reddit testicular cancer man graphic post life saved

The power of the internet!

Well, we mean, always use caution - for every one of these stories there's a thousand of them that can give incorrect information and needlessly worry people out there, or worse give people a false sense of security when they really need to get checked out!

A user on Reddit named Taylor Tyree had his life saved, though, while browsing the website and catching another user's graphic post about testicular cancer!

The post included a photo of having a testicle removed and a description of the poster's symptoms - and that's when Taylor realized he 'had something similar' happening.

An ultrasound, CAT scan, and X-ray revealed he had a large cancerous mass in his left testicle. It had to be removed IMMEDIATELY.

He's just 21!

Here's what he said:

'I went to the comments and was reading through and he was talking about symptoms and what not… it was like, wait, I have something similar to this.'

He's now returning the favor online - he too is posting pics of himself post-surgery and has been giving advice to others about getting checked and knowing the symptoms!

He continued:

'I met a lot of uniballers. I do have a message; I would say I don't do sports, so never had to have a physical, make sure you get checked out and do an exam, because you never know what will happen.'

Luckily, testicular cancer is one of the more treatable versions. Over 95% of people who catch it early can be completely cured.

Wanna know the crazy part?

This isn't the first time this has happened on Reddit. A user a while back took a pregnancy test as a joke and posted the positive results online. That's when other users urged him to get checked for testicular cancer!

Like we said, the power of the internet!
