    Hello everyone,

    I went to my doctor today because i think i have testicular cancer, before the doctor checked me out he made his mind up that i was too young to get TC and that people aged between 30-50 can only get it.

    He then checked me and said that my right testicle was swollen and that it might be a cyst, he then went on to explain what a cyst was but it did not make any sense.

    I cannot say that I have ever trusted that doctor and now i am even more scared after going to see him.

    any ideas on what my next move should be?

        Although it's relatively rare, testicular cancer is the most common cancer in men ages 15-35. I'd suggest that you see a urologist and probably have an ultrasound. It could well be a cyst, but it would be better to know for sure than to keep wondering.
