  • Just wondering

    My husband about four years ago went to the doctor to have them look at his testicale he had a big lump about the size of a nickle and they did an ultrasound and told him that it was just a cyst or pocket of fluid, but it has sense gotten bigger to the point of him know having almost like a third testicale. Is this normal and I think he should have a checked again because at what point does it turn into cancer? I had a aunt that was tested every year for breast cancer and the doctors told her she was fine and she had nothing to worry about. Then her next appointment they tell her she has cancer and it's in a stage four. I'm just a little worried. Any advice?

    It most likely really is a cyst, but I would certainly have it checked again and ask whether it should be corrected. If it has been four years between visits to the doctor, it's past time to go again anyway!

      It certainly sounds like a cyst but at that size something should probably be done.
