Nené’s Mystery Surgery– Malignant Testicular Tumor

January 23, 2008

I don’t know why, but there’s something about the concept of having one’s nut removed that freaks me out. Is it a feeling of lessening manhood, of being a little more neutered, like a dog? Or is it the public nature of one’s private parts? Or is it the impending “nutless wonder” jokes? Nené Hilario’s injury history has been long and painful, and when he was out recently with an undisclosed injury, I wondered what it could be about.

But this has to be the worst—having a testicular tumor removed. Good luck to the Nuggets’ forward; hopefully he can recover as well as John Starks recovered from his twisted testicle, which made me cringe (the twisted testicle is an anatomic possibility in up to 5% of men). The recovery rate is high, according to the article. But cancer at such a young age (25) is no joke.

Of course, this begs the question of “how will Reggie Evans defend a man without balls?” Really, inquiring minds want to know. That is a joke.
