I just came across this rather Interesting way to test for Testicular Cancer in men. Please be aware that this will not catch all forms of testicular cancer as not all testicular cancers raise hcg levels, but an interesting tidbit, regardless.
Imagine that, a Dollar Store Cancer test… interesting thought.
Other forms of cancer can also cause a rise in hcg levels as well.

I was actually just going to moderate this post and remove it because we try to ensure that everything shared in the forums is legit, researched this a little bit and found out that a person can indeed detect some forms of cancer this way.
thanks for sharing, here’s a link from abc news about this:
“it turns out a fair number of testicular cancers make the same exact hormone,” said dr. mark pomerantz, a genitourinary oncologist at the dana-farber cancer institute in boston. “there are very few things in the body that produce beta hcg, and testicular cancer is one of them.”
Very interesting read, thank you for sharing Goob!
