Feeling for lumps

 

Gently in

The mound of jelly

The bag of marbles

 

All the time

Wishing

Hopeing

 

Nothing to find

Testicular cancer self examination is something every man should do. I have to admit to ignoring it myself but caught early it is treatable. You capture this in an apporopriate metaphor but try playing marbles with my crown jewels and you are outta here buddy!

hmmmmmmmmmmmm bags of marbles ... mounds of jelly ... hmmmmmmmmmm nothing looked for found is good ... in that moment of relief ... awakens a call to look some more me thinks ;)))))))))))
self checks for cancer is simple and so important .... takes very little to make it a part of ones shower or bath routine ... i like how you wrapped this social message in poetry and emotion .. i dare say cancer of one sort or another has touched every family in the world in one way or another .. and that relief felt with negative results and/or 100% in remission is beyond words ... peace and joy Wild Rose

Doing a breast self-exam can be scary, but it is so important. Here's hoping you never find a lump. Lydi**

Cancer is such a killer. Anything we can do to stop it is a good thing.

So sorry. So sad. May her memory be a blessing
Self examination so important. Whether for prostate cancer or breast cancer, those checks can save lives. A wise thing to check. Good afternoon Wild Rose.

very scary to be looking for what this speaker is looking for...hoping not to find it...
i like the metaphor of "the bag of marbles"---
i like how this starts out clinically but drifted to the emotional reaction...
