Bike Accident Lets Man Discover Testicular Tumor

We’d never wish for anybody to get into a bike accident, but for Bobby Bansal, it might have just saved his life. Bansal was riding to the office when both of his bike tires suddenly burst, sending him crashing to the pavement. He managed to pick himself up and continue to work, but pain and swelling in his gonads took him to the hospital.

A nurse gave him an anti-inflammatory and told him that this kind of this was pretty common following a bike accident, so he headed home. However, as time passed, one of his balls shrank back to its regular size while the other one stayed large and painful. Bansal went back in for a scan, only to discover a tumor on one of his nuts.
