The 2nd of Movember

I’m not very proud of my growth as of yet. I feel like a young boy, or girl for that matter. I hope the people don’t tease me terribly, because of my affliction. Jesus, I ate over a pound of steak last night, so that my body would have enough protein to sprout a little face bush, but then I woke up to this pitiful little stubble. Does anyone have any tips on growing a lush ‘stashe? Maybe if I drink a bunch of beer each day. That used to grow stubble fast when I was younger, or maybe it was because I was drunk for three days at a time. Either way, I had a five o’clock shadow by noon, and that’s what I need now. It’s almost ten, so I’ll be cracking into a case here soon. Stop by if you aren’t doing anything, I’ll just be drinking and putting the shed together. Hahaha, you thought I forgot about the shed, didn’t you? Well, Scotty took me to the Home Depot yesterday and found me a lovely little model, and it’s made in the USA, so at least the money isn’t going to China. Anyhow, check this shit out.

Movember 2nd. When is that wound going to heal?

 

I’ve had enough of this pussyfooting around. I want you to donate money to my page. I need affirmation, and this is how you can give it to me. I will have photos taken in all kinds of compromising positions for a $20 donation. Why won’t you help? Do you hate men, and secretly want us to die of nut cancer? Go here to have your way with me.

 

Testicular Cancer

Issue: The incidence of testicular cancer in western countries has increased steadily in the past 40-50 years. The etiology of testicular cancer is not well understood, but there is sufficient evidence to postulate a link with endocrine modulating substances.

Background: Testicular cancer is a rare cancer, with an age-adjusted incidence of 4.2/100,000 in Canada. This accounts for 1.1% of all malignant neoplasms in Canadian males. Despite the low overall incidence of testicular cancer, it is the most common malignancy among young men, 25-34 years old. Testicular cancer varies notably with race, with incidence rates about threefold higher in Caucasians compared to African Americans in the US.

Disease trends: The incidence rate of testicular cancer has been increasing since the middle of the 20th century in many western countries, including Canada, the United States, the Nordic Countries, and Britain. The trend has been especially rapid in eastern European countries such as Slovenia. Countries with a sufficiently long period of cancer registration, such as Denmark, document this trend back to the first half of the 20th century. Despite the increase in testicular cancer in many western countries, the age-adjusted incidence of testicular cancer is low in all populations of the world. The lowest rates have been observed in Asian populations, African Americans, and black populations in general. The incidence rate in Denmark is in the order of 8 per 100,000, while in Japan and China and in African Americans, the incidence rate is on the order of 1 per 100,000. While the increase in testicular cancer incidence is an important cause of morbidity in young males, testicular cancer is one of the most curable of all solid neoplasms. The five year survival rate has increased during the last 30 years from 63% to over 90%. The present case fatality rate is 10-15 percent, and even in metastatic cases, cure rates are as high as 80 percent.
