Have you got the balls?

keep calm and check your balls

I tried, I really have been trying to ‘Keep Calm’ but thinking you may be told that you may have a few months to live is a position that will test the calmest of us all!!!

I felt something unusual in my right testicle but thought nothing of it…put it to the back of my mind and got on with marathon prep as that was more important. But every time I went for a wee, there they or it was, reminding me that I should get it checked out.

I mentioned it to my girlfriend Kirsty, who rightfully said “Get it checked out!” but after a few days I told her that it had gone (LIAR!).
