Middle aged man runs up to the triage desk in a panic talking about something bursting on his ass. I talk him down and think we're probably dealing with a standard buttock abscess that has caused a lot of discomfort and ruined a pair of underwear but not much else. I take him back to the triage booth and as I'm talking to him I discover that we are not, in fact, dealing with an abscess to the buttock, but in a less desirable spot:
And yes, this is the least disgusting google image search result. Don't do it, I warned you.
Now, this is unfortunate and could happen to anyone, but this is where the medical advising part comes in. Listen. If you ever wake up one morning and you find a painful spot on your taint that shouldn't be there, don't pussyfoot around about going to the doctor. And when you do go to the doctor and the doctor tells you that you need to make an appointment and get this shit taken care of, you should actually call the surgeon he refers you to, and in a timely manner, say less than 6 years. And if in that 6 years, you, for whatever reason, haven't called the surgeon, do not, I repeat, DO NOT, attempt to lance the abscess at home yourself in the mirror using a kitchen knife because that's how they did it back in the old days. Didn't work out so well.
I'm sorry. I know that was a gross story. Perhaps you might like to clear your head with some adorable, fluffy panda taint:
