    The urologist examines more testicles than yours and normal anatomy does have some variations, so if he said don't worry, and you believe him to be a reputable urologist, than you should relax. A clean exam and clear ultrasound sound good to me! If you are not able to get rid of the feeling he's missing something take your ultrasound films and get a second read on them.

        At this point, I'd assume what you're feeling is just the way you're made and not cause for worry. Pay attention for changes, but relax and enjoy life.

          Since you've had three doctor's visits about this since February, it's time to put it completely out of your mind until your next monthly self-examination.

            That's good advice: call the doctor's office on Monday morning and say that you would like reassurance that your ultrasound results are normal.

              You know what? Even if it IS TC, it is not the end of the world. Really. This site if filled with guys who have beaten stage III TC and live their lives fully and with a great attitude. You know what else? The healthiest person in the world can get hit by a car and killed. Life is like that and you need to come to terms with it. Log off this site, and your computer and read a book or watch a mindless TV show. Call your doctor in the morning, and if after getting an all clear you are still obsessing then you seriously need to consider help for your anxiety.
