    My situation is different. I heard that about 10 percent of men with testicular cancer do not develop any lump on testicles. I do not know if I have testicular cancer, and I don't have any lumps, but I developed a certain problem recently. I did have a sudden loss of sex drive. Did any of you with testicular cancer notice a sudden ablation of your sex drive? How common is this in testicular cancer? (I heard that it's one of the symptoms).Is a sudden loss of sex drive anything to worry about? What else can it be attributed to? I am 27 years old, white.

    I certainly wouldn't think I had tc just because of a loss of sex drive. What makes you think you have a problem? A heaviness in the testicle, backpain, coughing, testicle lumps or bumps, nipple pain. You posted back on 2/20 that you had a pea sized lump, did you get it checked, you certainly should. If it is bad news it won't get better as it gets older.
