    Will having testicular cancer in the past or present disqualify you for the USAFA? Also, would it be possible to get a waiver for this?

    Not a doctor or medical professional. But I think in this case ones health needs to come first.

    God Bless,

    :frown: I'm not 100% if I have this, but I'll find out here within a few weeks. My dreams that I've worked hard for might not happen after all. I will most likely not be able to call myself a West Point or Air Force Academy cadet. Let alone become an officer in the United States military. I know that I am jumping to conclusions, but this is probably true.
