A man decided to take a pregnancy test for fun - but it saved his life!


Why did this man come up with such a strange joke? Perhaps he was driven by an inner voice to do this?
Well well, let's go through the steps.
A user of the social news site Reddit posted a funny cartoon, in which a man, a friend of his, demonstrated that he had a positive pregnancy test. There was no end to the comments. More than a thousand comments. But things took a different turn, when one of the participants wrote: "If this is true, then you should go to a clinic to get a testicular cancer test. I'm serious. "Read about it on Google."
And later another commented, "You should go to the oncologist. He tells you he took a pregnancy test and it came back positive."  As it later turned out, these users saved this man's life. The friend who wrote the story told him about the comments. He listened to the advice and went for an investigation. Doctors found a small tumor in early stage of development.
Journalist Amy Oshiro decided to give more details about this case. (source:
As is well known, the principle of the pregnancy test is based on checking for the presence of human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG), which is produced when a woman is expecting a baby. It is produced by the placenta.
Dr. Frank Rodriguez, a specialist in oncology, confirmed that the hormone can also be present in some forms of cancer, including testicular cancer. He indicated that this type of cancer is relatively rare; only 5 out of every 100,000 people per year may suffer from this cancer.
The average age of men suffering from this disease is 40 years old, but the disease can also occur at approximately 25 years of age. According to statistics, more than 90% of men diagnosed with this condition are successfully cured, regardless of the stage they are in.
As you can see, a funny story took a totally different path. The man's unexpected experiment and his friend's funny story saved his life.
HIV infection among adolescents could increase by 60 %, warns Unicef
HIV infection among adolescents will increase by 60 percent by 2030 if no progress is made in the fight against the disease in this age group, one of the most vulnerable, UNICEF warned today.
On World AIDS Day, the agency warned that the number of infections among adolescents could rise from the current 250,000 a year to some 400,000 in less than 15 years if progress in combating the spread of the virus in the most vulnerable sector of the population is stalled.
"Every two minutes, an adolescent - women are more likely - is infected with HIV. If we are to end AIDS, we must redouble our efforts to care for all children and adolescents," said UNICEF Executive Director Anthony Lake in a statement.
According to data from the agency, some 41,000 adolescents between the ages of 10 and 19 died of AIDS in 2015 worldwide.
In addition, 1.1 million adolescents, children and women contracted the virus last year, with sub-Saharan Africa being the most affected region.
In this area, three out of four newly infected 15-19 year olds are girls.
The report proposes several strategies to prevent HIV infection among adolescents and to treat those who have already contracted the virus.
For example, it stresses the need to improve data collection and increase efforts to combat sexual discrimination and violence against women.
Eradicating AIDS by 2030 is one of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, which put the number of people living with the disease at nearly 37 million worldwide.
