  • I Dont know what to do.

    Hi Everybody,

    I have had a lump which aches on my testicles for the last 6 years now and have never been to get it checked. I am worried, and its probably just in my mind whats causing the pain. The main reason that I havent been to see my doctor is that I am terrified of getting an erection whilst he is examining me, I couldnt live with my self after being so embarresed. Also its likey that I would have to have an ultrasound which after reading around takes approx 20 mins, how can anyone keep it down when a girl is rubbing the ultrasound thing down there.

    I just cant deal with it, its been on my mind for the last 6 years now, I dont really understand it, if it was cancer, wouldnt I be dead right now?

    I would be gratefull for any help people can give me.

    Relax, the doctor won't care a bit. Get it checked out so you can stop worrying about it.
