I’m willing you peace and strength right now! Hopefully you guys caught it at an early stage and it won’t be too tough of a recovery process. (I think it’s a good sign that he’s in such great shape already– and, as you said, really smart that he got it checked out right away.) We love you, too!

I am so sorry!! I hope everything was caught early and is easily treatable…

Also, I know your brains are going to be focused on him getting better and maybe not on your future, but kids don’t have to be out of the picture… Think about freezing some of his sperm before treatment just incase.  A lot of women get their eggs harvested before undergoing chemo just in case.

I hope your Boyfriend or Best Friend has an easy and speedy recovery.

Wow, I can’t even imagine what you and your boyfriend are going through right now. This is obviously everyone’s worst nightmare; a seemingly small issue suddenly being diagnosed as cancer. Just know that you guys are in my thoughts and I’m hoping that the prognosis is good for your boyfriend. Things like this definitely put all those little life annoyances into perspective. It just sucks finding that out the hard way. Sending good thoughts your way.

I’m so sorry to hear this.  Good for you for sticking by him.  As far as fertility goes, hear out the dr’s.  My dad had testicular cancer and had one testicle removed, but they still concieved my baby brother after with no problems.

I’m so sorry to hear this! A friend of mine’s boyfriend had cancer, and when they caught it, it was so advanced that they started treatment immediately — before they could even think about sperm banking. My advice, similar to another bee above, would be to do the sperm banking immediately before starting chemo. The doctors may want to rush him — they (like you) are just concerned about helping him get better. Before they treat him, ask to speak with a fertility counselor. You’ll be in my thoughts!

I’m so sorry you and your Boyfriend or Best Friend are going through this. I’m proud of him for going to get it checked out, and for you being so observant to bring the lump to his attention. The two of you will get through this. I am thinking of you both.

I am so sorry you guys are going through this – may good health be restored to him, and may this not complicate your journey to starting a family.
