YouTuber Shares Testicular Cancer Story

YouTuber Here Be Barr, better known as Jon Barr, hadn’t posted a new video on his channel in two weeks. That’s a long time for the prolific travel blogger, who consistently updates his subscribers on his globe-trotting adventures.

In a new clip posted on April 28th, he explained why. While traveling in Mexico City, Barr noticed a lump on his balls and decided to fly home immediately. He checked into the hospital and got all the scans to make sure the cancer hadn’t spread to other parts of his body. This brought everything else in his life into perspective.

Thankfully, he had a less aggressive form of cancer and didn’t require any additional treatment, just regular monitoring for the next year. Not everybody is that lucky.

Now Barr is encouraging all young men to check their own sack once a month at minimum. Welcome to the fraternity, Jon. We hope your treatment goes well and your cancer doesn’t recur. Thanks for speaking up and sharing your story. From all of us at the Ball Report, we salute you.
