    Print out the self examination information that is listed here and have him read it. All you can do at this point is try and convince him that you want to be with him for a long time and that he needs to take care of himself for you.
    Son Jason diagnosed 4/30/04, stage III. Right I/O 4/30/04. Graduated College 5/13/04. 4XEP 6/7/04 - 8/13/04. Full open RPLND 10/13/04. All Clear since.

    Treated by Dr. Rakowski of Midland Park, NJ. Visited Sloan Kettering for protocol advice. RPLND done at Sloan Kettering.

      It may not be cancer, but he absolutely needs to have it checked. It doesn't pay to wait and hope it goes away. Refusing to see a doctor isn't manly.
