    At last!

    We can expect a really super album from Shezza next time round. "Wildflower" might have been even better than it not been for the Lance influence. He really mellowed her down.

    Perhaps Shezza should get together with Michael Schumacher next. The new album would really rock.



    btw andi, were you separated from Lance at birth???

    Yup, Shezza's lovely tapered thighs are designed to hold in place two globes, not a measly one.Would love to put my $0.02 there... :green:

    Gawd, it would take several years for the Internet to be free from the pollution of Shery & Lance pics. And these days, a search for Sheryl Crow news inevitably turns up hundreds of useless entries in cyclists' blogs.



    Goodbye Shance!

    That is not a skirt but a one-piece peekaboo "formal negligee" wrap from Narciso Rodriguez. Such pedestrian insight into haute couture, ye cyclists...

    Could be that Shazzer liked smooth legs. now Lance has retired and allowed the fur to grow back, the attraction evaporated. Or could be that cos he ain't got nothing better to do, He followed her everywhere like a lost puppy

    You can get by on one, had mine removed about 8 years ago, got cancer of the left bollock, followed by lungs and lymphs

    see this for more info http://www.cancerbacup.org.uk/Cancertype/Testes

    they give you a replacement its like one of them "super balls"



    also see here http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio1/scottmil...s_nuts/1.shtml

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio1/onelife/...sticular.shtml



    Testicular Cancer, Part 1




    Face it, it's a rare man who enjoys talking about his balls. At least, not about his testicular health.

    But testicular cancer can affect any man, at any time. Although it's rare (about one in 500 men will develop the disease between the ages of 15 and 50) it is the most common form of cancer in young men between the ages of 20-35. The rate is increasing and doctors don't know why.

    A simple, regular self examination is known to help detect the early signs of the disease and reduce the amount of treatment needed. But currently less than one in five men regularly check their testicles.

    First, the good news
    • More than 95 per cent of cases of testicular cancer are curable.
    • If it's caught early enough, the treatment is much simpler. (Cure at this early stage is 99 per cent).
    • Out of all cancers, testicular cancer is by far the easiest to treat.

    But

    • The average time it takes men to seek advice from a doctor is three months.



    Here's what you need to know to help you stay healthy
    From puberty onwards, it's important that you know your way around your balls, and what your testicles feel like. Making sure you know what is normal for you will make it easier to recognise any changes.

    NB: It's perfectly normal for one of your balls to be slightly bigger, or hang slightly lower, than the other - no-one is completely symmetrical and everybody's body is different!

    The best time to check your balls is in the shower or bath, as the skin will be looser and more relaxed. There's no point trying to check when you have an erection - the skin of the scrotum will be too tight for a proper examination.

    So when you're relaxed and there are no likely distractions...

    • Support or cup your balls in the palms of both of your hands.
    • Using your thumbs and forefingers, gently squeeze each testicle.



    © NetDoctor/Veisland Image reproduced by kind permission from netdoctor.co.uk


    • Learn to feel the difference between your testicles and the tubes, which connect them to the rest of your body (the epididymis). You may feel bumps in these tubes but these are not normally anything to worry about.
    • You're looking out for changes in the consistency of the testicles themselves - pea-sized hardened areas or swellings. These lumps are usually painless.



    What to do next
    If you do find something irregular or if anything has changed since you last checked, it doesn't mean you have cancer.

    But it is very important to take action. Put aside any embarrassment and have the balls to see a doctor. Don't panic, but don't put it off. The sooner anything is diagnosed, the sooner it's treatable. You will not be wasting anyone's time and you will be doing the right thing. Remember - it's your body and it's up to you to look after it. Don't take a chance.

    (And remember - you always have the right to ask to see a different doctor to your usual GP if you wish.)

    If the doctor isn't immediately sure, a series of simple tests will help suggest or discount cancer. The doctor may arrange some blood tests and/or an ultrasound examination. This uses sound waves to build up a picture of the testes and scrotum, and can distinguish between cancer and lumps due to other causes. It's totally painless.

    What happens then?
    Sometimes, these tests may still not totally rule out the possibility of cancer and the only certain way to detect testicular cancer then is by surgery.

    During a short operation the surgeon can usually see whether the lump is cancerous or not and a small sample of tissue may be taken for immediate examination. This procedure is called a biopsy. If the biopsy shows that the lump is cancerous, the testicle will be removed. The removal of a testicle is called an orchidectomy.

    Losing a testicle
    The thought of losing a testicle is understandably distressing. But its removal can sometimes be the only way to ensure that your body is rid of cancer. And, despite common belief:
    • Having had a cancerous testicle does not affect your ability to have children.
    • Even having one testicle removed does not affect your ability to have children.
    • It does not limit sexual performance.



    And for cosmetic reasons, a replacement artificial 'testicle' is available to patients so that, in time, your outward appearance will be exactly as it was.

    If the cancer has not spread further, this may well be the only surgery needed though, of course, there will be routine hospital check-ups in time to make sure everything's going well.

    If cancer spreads
    If the cancer has spread, a two to three month course of chemotherapy is usually given. Chemotherapy (chemo for short) is the use of anti-cancer drugs to zap remaining cancerous cells in the body. The drugs are given intravenously (by injection into a vein) so that they can circulate in the bloodstream throughout the body, getting rid of any bad cells and helping prevent a recurrence of the cancer.

    Treatment for testicular cancer is very successful and, after standard chemo, the cancer does not usually come back.

    How can I prevent it?
    Any man is at risk of being diagnosed with testicular cancer at any age. Doctors do not yet know what causes the disease, but there are a number of factors that may affect the chance of developing it.

    You are more at risk if:
    • Your testicles did not descend into the scrotum during puberty.
    • A member of your immediate family has had testicular cancer.
    • You lead an inactive lifestyle - regular exercise is a very important way of preventing cancer.
    • You smoke. If you don't smoke, you've already cut the risk of any cancer.



    It's always advisable to see a doctor if you are worried about any aspect of your health - but remember: for early detection of testicular cancer, regular self-examination is very important for everyone.
