  • painful lump on right?

    Hello everyone. About a month ago a noticed a small painful lump on my left testicle. I went to my GP and he could barely feel anything and said that it probably wasn't anything serious but if it gets any bigger to check back in.

    About 2 weeks later the lump evened out and now it feels like a hard vein that extends behind the testicle and to the epididymis.

    Now I have noticed the same kind of lump on my right testicle. This time its a little bigger and I am noticing leg pain (almost like growin pains especially at night when I am lying down). THe odd thing is I cant really tell if its part of the vein or not. Its like a peice of rice that is connected at one end to the testicle but the other end can move around in circles? I have no clue. Wierd, huh?

    My question is - should I be overly concerned? I have an appointment for next month its just the anxiety is horrible. I have no history of cancer in my family and I am in relativly good health.

    Any suggestions would be great.

    Thanks again.

    Whatever it is, I'd think you'd want to have it checked out sooner than a month from now. Most likely it's something less serious than cancer, but better safe the sorry.
