  • I just found a lump on my testicul... HELP PLEASE!

    Im only 15 and i dont really understand fully about TC. I have briefly studied it, but just coming out the shower i got sorted and whatever and discovered a lump just above my Scrotum leading up towards my penis (it is very hard to explain where the lump is) but its there. I am pretty concerned about this at first i thought imediatly that this is TC.

    Is there any suggestions or help anyone can provide?
    Thank You.

    Try not to worry about the worst case diagnosis.. It could just be a cyst, calcium deposit or an infection that could be cleared up with a few weeks of meds.... Being 15 years old the first thing you need to do is explain the problem to your parent or parents.. I'm sure they will have no problem setting you up with a doctors appiontment.... whatever you do--don't put off the problem.. that usually only makes thing worse...... Don't be imbarrassed to speak with your parents about this.. they will be happy that you are taking care of yourself and also that you tell them when you have a problem!!!!!best of luck !!!!

      At the attached link you will find instructions on how to do a proper self exam. As Don said don't worry too much about tc it's very unlikely that you have it but you should stiil get checked.
      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.
