Your local friendly GP
Sorry for lack of funnies but i will try and drop the odd one in as i go along..............wavy lines...........

Back in February 2009 (ok the wavy lines aren't that big or prolonged) I was in the shower having a general good scrub when, whilst washing the danglies i noticed what can only be described as a pea attatched to one of my clackers (inside on the bollock itself not outside on the skin), calling the then Mrs Spinks she examined me (with that "i know what your doing, blowjob after the shower boy" look on her face). She concurred with me that indeed i did have a lump and that a visit to my doctors was indeed in order! Anyway a few days later I found myself sat in the waiting area of my GP's, sat quietly amongst the hoardes of people who, i swear to god, consider the doctors surgery as a day trip and a good place to spend a day!! I digress, i saw my GP who told me "yes you do have a lump, its nothing to worry about". With my angst duly put aside off i toddled and tried to forget about the offending clacker.

As time went by the dangly lump started growing and becoming a bit achy, i also started getting backache (not uncommon in steel erecting)So I went back to see the doctor and, not even looking up from the computer screen let alone examine me, he told me "i said last time it was nothing please leave"...i was somewhat shocked so went to see the receptionist to see another doctor for a second opinion (doctors receptionists are a whole different story...when was a medical degree and the ability to diagnose a prerequisite for being a receptionist for fuck sake??) I saw another doctor the following day and again, barely registering my prescence he concurred with the earlier GP that i had nothing to worry about (hello wheres the examination or the referral please!!)

A week goes by and the backache and clackerbag pain is getting markedly worse and sod it i took myself to A&E where i saw a brilliant young doctor (not British but he was amazingly caring and professional) who sent me to the ultrasound people for an IMMEDIATE scan....anyway i'll cut out the boring stuff but after all the scans etc i was taken in to have the offending clacker removed and had a full CT scan thingumy..the results?? Cancer....not just in the testicle, oh no thats not good enough, due to the delay in getting checked its spread to my abdomen and lungs!! 4 months of chemo later and I am sat waiting for the next bout of surgery to remove a few more tumours.....so.........THANKS A FUCKING BUNCH DR "HAIRY EARS" YOU ARE A COMPLETE AND UTTER CUNT!

Ooops i seem to of forgotten the funnies....my bad!

Go back to the doctors who ignored you...
Give them a right good telling off, (bollocking?) you could sue them if you wanted. At the very least make sure they don't do the same to someone else. It might be nothing 99% of the time but doctors can't take the risk or make a decision without examining you. Good luck with the recovery.

Heal soon
Good on you for your determination and for actually standing up to the stupid fucking Doctor who misdiagnosed.

Have you considered a formal complaint for malpractice?

Good luck with Chemo, I understand that it is hardly enjoyable, but be brave and don't give up.

^ this
kind of shit should not be possible surely!? I would send some big lads round to duff them up a little (or lot), it would certainly make me feel better if you did.

hope you're on the mend :-)

Best of luck...
with your treatment. I hope you make a full recovery. I also hope your GP's incompetence gets shown up publicly. How your symptoms could have been so cavalierly dismissed is beyond me.
Best wishes to you and your wife and family.

for malpractise. They could have fucking killed you if you hadn't gone to A&E.
