According to the American Cancer Society, pregnancy tests work by detecting a hormone called Beta-HCG (human chorionic gonadotropin). Beta-HCG is produced by the cells of a woman’s placenta during pregnancy, but is also excreted by some tumors “including some, but not all, testicular cancers,” the cancer society says.
"At the time of diagnosis, only a small minority of men with testicular cancer have HCG levels high enough to be detected by a home urine pregnancy test," says Dr. Ted Gansler, director of medical content for the American Cancer Society, in a statement. "More sensitive blood tests for HCG with a lower cutoff level could detect a somewhat higher percentage, but several non-cancerous conditions can cause false positive results.
"Current evidence does not indicate that screening the general population of men with a urine test for HCG (or with urine or blood tests for any other tumor marker) can find testicular cancer early enough to reduce testicular cancer death rates," Gansler says.

Pendragon is the name of the Royal Family of Camelot. One of the members of the Pendragon family, Uther Pendragon, brought the name to greatness. He conquered Camelot as a young man with the dragon Kilgharrah at his side and was crowned King. Lady Ygraine was a much loved queen when she was alive, hatching dragon eggs, naming young ones and raising them to protect the people and their lands. Both Lord Arthur and Lady Morgana followed in their footsteps. The siblings possessed the rare ability to tame dragons and used these skills in battle; expanding their kingdom and ruling for many years.
