Nuts, Balls and Rocks

In July 2008 Adrian Jowett had the misfortune to be diagnosed with testicular cancer; something that one could assume that most men dread, if they have even thought of the problem. Indeed, most men’s cancers have a far lower profile than those affecting women, despite them being potentially lethal. The risk is compounded by men’s reluctance to seek a medical opinion. Recently, the footballer, John Hartson described his procrastination as “a bloke thing”. Such a delay may well make treatment less successful. In ‘Nuts, balls and rocks’ Adrian Jowett recorded his experiences from the first day that he walked into the Northern General Hospital with ‘a swelling’. Unexpectedly there were comical events throughout his treatment and it was these that first encouraged him to document his year of treatment. In addition to an enjoyable story the book contains a short glossary that clarifies the specialist vocabulary so beloved of the medical profession which may help a man, or their family, in a similar situation.
