  • in 2 minds

    about 5 weeks ago i found a very small lump (felt more like a spot )on my left testicle.
    straight away i was worried and went to the doctors to see what he had to say.
    he said he didnt think i had anythink to worry about but he would fax the local hospital to get me an ultra sound apointment.

    the apoint came through and sadly i could not attend due to me flying off to germany to watch england in the world cup.

    my girlfriend recieved a letter while i was away with a new apointment which is set for next week,but when i got back from germany i had a bath and thought i would check the lump to see if it had gotten bigger over the week and to my surprise the damn lump has gone,and i cannot find it on my testicle at all now.

    does this mean it can not be cancer?
    i always thought that to be cancer there must be a lump?

    i am in 2 minds wether to cancel my ultra sound or go anyway even tho the lump which i was scared of has now gone.

    any input would be great guys.
    thanks in advance

    The lump could very easily have been an infection that simply clearedup on its own. It's probably nothing to worry about but I would get the ultrasound done just to be safe.
