  • Test Information

    Hi All, last week i discovered a lump on one of my testicles. I have had an ultrasound scan which did show a dark area which my doctor said required "further tests". I have an appointment tomorrow to have these test but i am a little worried as to what is involved, can anyone can spread some light on what tests are involved in confirming what this might be?

    Blood work is certainly in order and they may want to do the ultrasound again. The bad news is that if it shows a soild mass it (the testicle) will need to be removed. Not all forms of tc show up in blood work.
