  • Paranoid or not?

    I'm 29 years old and I am freaking out. I am not sure if this is all in my head or what. my girlfriend just had a 12 centimeter non-cancerous tumor removed from her ovaries. I was obviously very thankful when i found out.

    but lately i have been getting these slight pains in my abdomen, groin/thigh and in my scrotum. Its almost a feeling of someone squeezing my scrotum (not to be graphic). as well as a pain in my lower back but not when you put any pressure on the areas it just comes and goes.


    I thought maybe my back issues were because of my weight and because i sit too long in a crappy chair, as for the groin/abdomen area I didn't know what was causing it.

    So I was reading a site about TC, and i did the self examination ... I didn't find any lumps or anything. Then i came upon a site that said if have all the slight pains in the areas i mentioned, that its possible you may have TC.

    I don't feel fatigued or anything different about myself. Though i did have a Urinary tract infection a couple months ago. that while my doctor wasn't too concerned with did say that when i get insurance I should go get a ultrasound (i believe) done.

    obviously i know you're not doctors and I will probably be going to see one soon. Just would like your opinion.

    I suspect it's not cancer, but I'd still check with your doctor.

      I would be surprised if you had tc. But why be uncomfortable, go see a doctor and get better. Keep us posted.

        Maybe it is just all in my head and every little discomfort I am amplifying. Today I didn't really have any pain in my scrotum. Had a bit of discomfort in the crease where my thigh meets my groin and a bit of tightness in my abdomen.

        I will probably give it a few more days and see if it goes away by itself, if not I will be on my way to the doctor definately.


        I apologize for making this post, really at the time i was frantic and out of my mind with worry. I appreciate you both replying

        thank you
