In the Interim

"Nudity in our house is normal. There is never any shame involved even with an erection. After reading your post yesterday I thought it might be time to teach my son how to do a ball check.Thanks for the reminder. Its a good thing because we found a lump. Not on him but on my left nut. My appointment has already been scheduled. But I'm freaking out because I can't get in to see him for almost three months. Should I go to an emergency room instead?"

And we talk about wait times in countries with socialized medicine! Well, that's our great health care system now. But, I think you can calm your fears. You found the lump, you've scheduled the check-up. If you have no unplanned weight loss, or any other odd symptoms, chances are quite good that the wait won't make any significant difference.

In the interim, begin doing a weekly check to keep an eye on the size of the lump. If there is significant change, call again and ask to be squeezed into the schedule sooner.
Just as a cautionary measure, do a check for blood in your semen. Go have a enjoyable session of self-indulgence, but cum on something light-colored; a sheet of paper and then inspect it for traces of red, or pink. If you do see telltale signs, call and ask for an expedited appointment.

I do have to congratulate you for teaching your son the importance of the self-exam. According to Institute for Cancer Research, "Nearly half of testicular cancer risk comes from inherited genetic faults. ... The research suggests genetic inheritance is much more important in testicular cancer than in most other cancer types, where genetics typically accounts for less than 20% of risk." 
If you can't log on regularly here for the monthly reminder, I suggest you get a calendar and mark it each month and hang it where you and your son will both see it. That way, you will both stay healthy.

Any and All Means

Now, you know I wasn't about to allow this day to go by.
For new Followers, this is the 15th of the month which makes it
That means you do a Testicular Self Exam (TSE). Get those man-berries nice and warm and loose. Then (gently) squeeze each one between thumb and forefinger. You are looking for any unusual lumps or spots which may be more dense than the surrounding tissue.

If anything - anything - seems suspicious to you, call your physician at once to schedule an appointment so he/she can check it.
Once you have finished, then you use any and all means at your disposal to encourage other men to follow suit.

Testicular Cancer knows no ethnic or socioeconomic boundaries. It's most common among males 15 to 45 years of age. But, that doesn't mean it sticks to that age range. So, get busy with those balls, boys!
Yep, we all know

And, that's perfectly okay. It's good for your health.
Enjoy yourself!

8th Anniversary

Sometime in the past 4 weeks, 
as the 8th Anniversary slipped by,
Big Whack Attack tipped over
9 Million page views.
And, oddly enough, gained 20+ new followers.

The new followers could be a result of Tumblr closing all "adult oriented" blogs (though some are still there; inactive but still there). I'm not inclined to question it, though. It's my hope they'll join in the great conversations we have here as we encourage everyone to cease male body shaming

and seek to keep those man parts healthy.

I can't say Thank you enough.

Monkey Wrenches

Where do the days go? The appointment with the attorney went well, but also informed us that my mom tossed a couple monkey wrenches into the mix one year after our dad died. Now we are faced with anywhere from 2 months to 2 years to straighten out the mess. We know she didn't mean this to be the case, but it is what it is.

Lots to do but it also becomes a "hurry up and wait" thing, too. My brother and I sit together with many conversations, trying to plan for all kinds of different outcomes.
Hopefully, though it will be a bit of a juggling act, I can return home and get back to some kind of normal routine soon. 

I send a huge thanks! to all who have left comments and send messages of love and support. It means a lot. You people are awesome!

Thank you & Happy New Year

Thank you for so many lovely comments and emails over the past 2-1/2 weeks. It's been slow going around here - the unreliable internet connection notwithstanding. Odd that the holidays put a hold on dealing with a death. However, tomorrow my mom will be interred and we will meet with the attorney to figure out at least a beginning to disbursement of the estate.
I wanted to stop in and wish a very Happy and Healthy 2019 to one and all.

My Absence

I know my Faithful readers have probably wondered what happened. I have been on the watch with my mother as she faced her final transition. She did so Friday evening. It was a rough ride for her and I know she's much happier.
The business of death continues, though, and I doubt I'll be back home for at least another few weeks. The internet link here is sporadic - and very slow, so I can't make any promises of posting.
In the meantime, may everyone have a wonderful Christmas!
