    Is "the spotty thing" on the scrotum or on one of the testicles? I can't really tell what you are describing, please be more specific and someone may have some answers for you. Hope you are doing okay, worrying s*cks! But, as always go to the doc if you think something is up-- saved my life!!

      If the spot/lump is on the scrotum it will not be testicular cancer.

        As said above if it's on the scrotum or outside the sack it's not TC.. Advice to follow in the future ..When in doubt of a physical abnormality or illness--Always see a doctor!!!!!

            Well, if you're scared of the symptoms you have, you should get checked
            out by a doctor and at the very least, ease your mind.

            And if your weight is causing back pain, maybe it's time to see a
            doctor about a weight reducing plan as well.

            It's your life and you only get one here. Make the most of it.

                The doctor should send you for an ultrasound, but it might be a cyst. Let us know what the doctor says.

                    Draft:
                    Your mother can rest easy, your tc has nothing to do with her breast cancer. So far they have not been able to make a link other cancers. If you have tc in the family your odds of getting are increased very slightly.
