Shea Theodore opened up in the Players' Tribune about his battle with testicular cancer

by Shea Theodore @GoldenKnights /

"Well, we can schedule the surgery for next Tuesday."

The doctor said it just like that.

And I was like, "Wait … what? So … do I have it?"

"The scan shows a five millimeter by five millimeter lump in your testicle. It'll be a routine procedure. Once we take it out and do a biopsy, we'll know more about the type of cancer. But you're young, and we caught it early."

So, yeah. Three months ago, I was diagnosed with testicular cancer. Crazy, right?

I'm usually not the most outspoken guy in the world, and this is a tough thing to open up about….. so please bear with me.
