Last week, a Reddit user posted a comic she made, after a male friend took a home-pregnancy test and it turned up positive. Funny stuff, indeed.
That’s when some other Reddit users — including medical students — told her that her friend should get checked for testicular cancer.
He did. It was.
She drew another comic (language warning).
“I’m happy I made the comic,” she told CBC News. “We both feel like if it wasn’t made, he may not have caught the tumour as early as he did. Not only that, but it’s pretty neat that something as small and silly as a comic can help someone this much, even if it wasn’t initially meant to.”
