Pregnancy test joke detects cancer

TORONTO, Nov. 12 (UPI) -- An Ontario man who was shocked to receive a positive result from a take-home pregnancy test discovered the stick had detected testicular cancer, a friend said.

A woman who posts to website Reddit under the name "CappnPoopdeck" created a comic strip about her male friend's unusual pregnancy test result and posted it on the website, where users posted comments explaining the test was likely detecting hormones from testicular cancer, the Toronto Star reported Monday.

The woman said the man went to his doctor and found a small tumor in his right testicle.

"Since it was caught early, it can be treated immediately," she said.

The woman said she and her friend wish to remain anonymous to protect their privacy.

"For the last few days, our lives have been revolving around the press demanding information about his testicle, which both of us are embarrassed and shy about talking publicly about," she said in an email to the Star.
