It’s been over 6 months since I found out I had a malignant tumor. On March 24th, I visited an Urologist and he didn’t save me from hearing one of the most shocking news of my life. After my Ultra Sound exam, I heard something along the lines: “Yes, it is cancer. Yes, it can be malignant. Your testicle needs to be amputated. You will need further treatment, either chemotherapy or radiation. But it doesn’t mean you won’t be a real man just with one ball…” OK. hold up. I was in shock. After I heard words like cancer, amputation, chemo, I couldn’t hold myself up from letting a tear fall. Is this really happening to me? I went outside crying. Smoked like 3 cigarettes in a row. And from that day, I knew my life would never be the same… To make the long story short, I ended up with 3 rounds of BEP chemotherapy treatment (Bleomycin, Etoposide, Cisplatin IV drug cocktail). I was very depressed during the whole process, but I had my family and friends by my side. I am very grateful for that. On July 28th, I had my latest CT scan to find out my Lymph Nodes are back to normal and am in “clear.” Never would I have thought I would beat cancer while still being a teenager. One of my goals before turning 20 was to finish a novel. I finished cancer. And maybe one day I’ll write a book about it.
