  • Not sure... Can the doctors be wrong?

    Hey, this is will be my first post/thread at this site.

    Approximatley under a year ago I found a tiny bump on my testacle, around 2mm in diameter, maybe even smaller. I also found, possibly later, don't quite remember, another such object, but I'm sure that's just a vein. This is on my left testacle by the way, it is also an undescended testacle. My left testacle is larger and harder (I think) than my right one. I talked to my parents after a few months of this discovery and we went to the physician and had two ultrasounds. The doctors didn't seem to find anything, although they seemed rather incompetent to me, although I can be wrong.
    Also, a few days ago, I began to have random bursts of pain that came from my left testacle, but maybe this is normal for people my age (15)... These random bursts of pain can hurt quite a bit and sometimes not so much, I also feel my left leg sometimes hurting and usually in response to the aches from the testacles. What do you think that problem may be?
    Anyhoo, I was just wondering, is it possible for the doctors to be mistaken, twice, I do show all of the symptoms, but my doctor assured me that it is common for one testacle to be larger than the other and that the bump may be just a vein or a build-up of semen.
    Also, I'm not sure if this is relevant but my left testacle grows larger and smaller, and if you cup it in your hands you can feel the change, although my right testacle also does this, but not to such a degree. Sometimes when I cup both testacles they feel the same size to me but usually my undescended one is larger.
    What do you guys think? I appreciate the help.

    O, right, and another thing I forgot to mention. I noticed all this after I fell off a fence on to my testacles, really hard. After that I felt around and felt all this. If I'm not mistaken I beleive they've become in a mroe oval-like shape after that fall. May that bump just be dried up blood? After all the doctors said it was nothing to worry about...

        Have you been seen by a Urologist or just family doctor?

          I wouldn't be too worried about what happened a year ago. Two ultrasounds should have found a tumor if there were one there to find. However, I would ask your doctor about these new "random bursts of pain," though they're unlikely to be caused by testicular cancer. It sounds as though you recently injured yourself.

            Well, first I just got a check-up, which included an ultrasound of my testacles, then I went to my family doctor saying I got these bumps and she sent me to the ultra sound place again. And these random bursts of pain, I have no idea what they are, it haven't quite injured them... But they seem to be gone, I'm having almost no bursts today...

              This sounds like an injury to me!
