    hello everyone this is my first post and intro I am currently a st male married to my best friend of 8 yrs total married 4 of the 8. We are both 29,i am a testicluar cancer survivor with no relapse in the last 3 yrs .Before i had cancer i was large 8x4 now i am 6x4 ,i can get to the 8x4, but have to use pump to get it there from the lasting effects of chemo.wife accepts me of what i did have and what i dont have .I only havce 1 testicle left but i did have chance to bank frozen sperm before chemo and etc .now we are in the process of trying to have baby hope it works.thats pretty much my life in a nut shell.

    P.S all of the males in here that are youg please do a monthly checkup of feeling the testicles. Never know when the cancer can come esp, when it can spread and dont even know about it.Ages from 21 to 30 so from 1 that did get it never take it for granted may loose it later in life.

    Welcome to the group, and thanks for the information.

    One of my pals had the same illness and he's doing well with no relapse for over 15 years. He didn't have the opportunity for sperm banking, so you're fortunate in that regard.

    Yes, congradulations and welcome. And yes testicular cancer usually strikes young men, not old men, though there are exceptions.

    Every man should examine his testicles about once a month for any sore or unusual bumps places. If they persists, see a doctor soon. It could be testicular cancer.
