Testicles: they don’t call them a man’s jewels for no reason. After all, they’re the source of all our manliness, producing testosterone daily, which gives us muscle definition, the hair on our faces, and the ability to perform sexually. This should explain, then, why we prize them so much, and why it hits so close to home when people like Tom Green and Lance Armstrong are diagnosed with testicular cancer — both of them got a testicle removed, and Green even had his operation televised.
There’s another condition that’s particularly scary for men: testicular atrophy, colloquially known as shrinking balls. Finding out your balls are shrinking is especially scary because you probably won’t feel anything resembling a tumor underneath, however, you’ll sure as hell be wondering what’s causing it and if you’re in danger of anything. If you ever find yourself going from walnuts to grapes down there, it could be because of one of these five reasons.
