Metastatic Nose

When I was in the hospital recovering from my RPLND, I had a visit from my aunt and uncle. They are getting up there in age, and especially my uncle's hearing is not what it used to be. When they came in the room, I could see immediately they were shocked by the look on their faces. I knew I looked bad, but I didn't think I looked *that* bad!

It wasn't until I heard my aunt ask my wife why I didn't have any bandages on my face that I knew something was amiss. It seems that when my uncle was told my testicular cancer spread to my lymph nodes, he somehow dropped the "lymph" part, and parsed "nodes" as "nose". He thought I had nose cancer! Cancer that spread from my nuts to my nose! I bet that's a first!
