THE FACE OF TESTICULAR CANCER

Cue up that X-File theme because this is a weird one for sure.

While doing an ultrasound on the testicle of a 45 year-old cancer patient, Dr Greg Roberts and Dr Naji Touma from Queen's University in Ontario were shocked to discover a face staring back at them.  So shocked, as a matter of fact, that they submitting the image to the journal Urology.

While the doctors all pretty much agree that the uncomfortable looking face is more than likely a coincidence, it hasn't stopped the image from becoming popular in and out of the medical field.

As for that 45 year-old patient, he opted to have his testicle removed and a biopsy proved it to be benign... a diagnosis that any cancer patient would give their right nut for.
