  • Questions about the epididymis


    Just a question about the ep.
    Do you have these in both testicles and if so should one be more prominent than the other, the reason I ask is I cant make up my mind if I have a lump or if it is just the epididymis. Any info would be of a great benefit as I don't want to go to the doctor and waste his time if it's nothing to worry about.

    The attached link takes you to a site which explains how to do a proper self exam. If after you check yourself you have any questions just write back.
    Son Jason diagnosed 4/30/04, stage III. Right I/O 4/30/04. Graduated College 5/13/04. 4XEP 6/7/04 - 8/13/04. Full open RPLND 10/13/04. All Clear since.

    Treated by Dr. Rakowski of Midland Park, NJ. Visited Sloan Kettering for protocol advice. RPLND done at Sloan Kettering.

      My left one is larger than my right one. I just got it checked out yesterday. I have a small bump on top of my left one. But that was a little inflimation from twisting and pulling it a bit. So you are probably ok!
