I have an appointment this morning, but that was hardly going to stop me from posting the monthly reminder...though it is a scheduled one
Buddy Ball Check
Do that ball check, guys. Give "The Boys" a thorough once-over.
If all is well, terrific. go on about your day. If something seems out of the ordinary, schedule that appointment to have your doctor check them.
That done, reach out to every male you can - in any way you can - to remind them to do the same.
More on BallsThe post I did about Twisted Testicles garnered a comment from an Anonymous Reader who asked about Testicular Trauma from getting kicked in the nuts, and whether it might require medical care.
IF you experience severe pain that lasts longer than a couple of hours, or the swelling does not reduce, hightail it to the Emergency Room. One or both of your balls could have been ruptured (burst). The ER folks will do a scrotal scan to determine if your testicles are still in one piece or if they've been mangled to the point of needing surgery. They will then take the appropriate action.
Folks, when it comes to the balls, don't mess around...
