A testicular tumor can be serious and potentially life-threatening if it becomes Malignant and depending on the stage where it is identified, so sporting concerns obviously fall by the wayside. Haller’s health is what is important here. For those reasons, I ask that everyone in the comment section leave discussions about who should start at striker to another time and place.
Obviously, the entire Borussia Dortmund fan base offers its best wishes to Sebastien Haller and his family. The club should absolutely do everything in its power to ensure that Haller has access to the highest standard of treatment in the world.
