I can't remember the last time I had sex and I've never had a heavy period so I think I'm good. Being a nerd guy has its advantages.

"My CT scan a week later showed that each ovary had been overtaken by tumors the size of small citrus fruit, and I had a third tumor the size of a larger citrus fruit in the center of my abdomen. "

Navel oranges?

Excerpt from Noble Ape - Jim Gaffigan:

"It was crazy. You know, the surgeon told me the tumor was the size of a pear... Which is scary, but also confusing. I was like, "Did he go to med school or a farmer's market?" But tumors are often compared to fruit. A pear, a lemon, a grapefruit. Interesting fact, worst tumor, grapefruit. Worst fruit, grapefruit. When you think about it, a grapefruit looks more like a tumor than a fruit. I must feel sorry for grapefruit. "Yeah, we can't win, you know?" We're already the worst fruit, now we're compared to the worst tumor? "Well, at least we help old people poop." That is the worst impression of a grapefruit ever. It's kind of unfortunate that there's another fruit that's much smaller named "grape" 'cause you know there's situations in doctor's offices, "We found a tumor, it's the size of a grape..." "Thank God." "I didn't finish... Grapefruit." "Oh, that's... That's very different." It was strange. You know, when the doctor told me the tumor was the size of a pear, I thought, "Wow, I guess doctors are bad at analogies." But I quickly realized they're just dumbing it down for idiots like me. Like the surgeon looked at me and thought, "Well, this guy's not gonna understand centimeters." I don't even wanna try and explain circumference. Based on appearance, he doesn't eat fruit, but... he's probably seen a pear... "when he's at the grocery store buying ice cream."
