  • Not sure what's wrong with me

    My entire scrotal area is very sensitive and I'm worried I might have TC. My symptoms are a bit different than anything I've read. First, it's hard for me to self-examine because when I do, I feel sore for the next several hours. I have felt a hard sort of pea size bump on my right testicle, but I can't always feel it. I have read it's best to self-examine after a hot shower, and I have tried and definitely can't feel the bump after doing so. I feel this bump only after ejaculation.

    Also, after having sex, I have noticed my left testicle ascends to my abdomen and stays there for some time and then descends usually after a few minutes.

    Has anyone experienced any of this? I'm going to set up an appointment because the pain and sensitivity is not going away.

    I've done some more research and maybe this is an inguinal hernia...however, I still need to get that mysterious bump checked out as well.

      You don't seem to have any tc symptoms but your doing the right thing getting checked out. You may be right about the hernia.
