  • unsure about what to do.

    Sorry to post again, but this time i would like to describe my lump using a picture

    its a hard, painless lump which ive had for about 6 weeks at least. It doesnt seem to be getting much bigger, maybe a little but it might just be in my head.

    As you can see it seems to be attached by a thin cord to the bottom of my testicle. I think it could be just an extremity of the epidydmis. The lump, however, is not actually on the testicle so can it be testicular cancer? Also, if it was cancer, how long b4 other symtomns would show and how long does it take to spread.

    Hi thx.

    It dosen't look like TC. So, there is no reason to be afraid to go to the doctor and find out what it really is! Got it?
    I know that you question is phrased a little different, but I will answer it this way anyway:
    To wait and see if secondary TC symptoms develop is about the dumbest thing anyone could ever do. Got it?

    Let's know what the doc says.

    Best wishes

      Your already doing the mature thing by 1) checking your self and 2) asking question concerning yourself. Finish doing the right thing and go to the Doctor. You will feel much better once you here the DR. say "your OK".

      THe only person that will ever be able to tell you exactly what is happening to you is a DR. The picture you submitted certainly isn't consistent with TC but you may have some sort of infection that if not treated could lead to more problems in the future!!!! DON
