  • found a lump

    hi im andy a couple of weeks ago i got an infection in my penis basically the skin on the end of my penis split and got an infection in which the end of my penis swelled up i went to doc and the doc told me it was caused with me not controlling my diabetes corectly as if my sugar levels are high it affects my penis as in drying it up hence the split skin anyway i had antibiotics which has cleared it up but just a couple of days ago i have noticed a hard lump in front of my right testicle its not attached to the testicle and have no pain it is probably about the size of a kidney bean or somthing simular could it be cancer as im not working tomorrow im going to try get in the docs if they have any appointments left but would like someone elses oppinion aswell

    If it's not attached to the testicle, then it doesn't sound like testicular cancer. It's good that you're having it checked, though.

        A cyst isn't cancerous, it's a collection of fluid. When are you scheduled with the urologist?

            With the lump not being attached to the testicle it's very unlikely that it's any form of cancer. With that being the case I don't know that you would need to miss any time from work.

                If it's growing at that rate you should certainly call the doctor or get yourself to the ER. No cyst or infection should be growing that quickly without getting medical treatment.

                  been down a&e today as you said and three doctors have said it is a cyst and its looking like its going to burst anyday now they have given me some antibiotics and said if it gets any worse in the next few days to come straight back and they will remove it but i think i would prefer it to burst rather than have it surgically removed but if it does burst do u think i should still see the urologist when my appointment arrives

                    androb1976:
                    Don't wait for it to burst. If that shold happen you will get one heck of an infection, and the complications of having your testicles swimming in puss could be quite bad.

                      Yes go to the doctor infections can cause a lot of problems don't mess around with anything in that area unless you don't want kids and want to get really sick. The URO knows what is best in that area. Also if it does burst you better be on the phone to the doctor to let them know.
