  • Just pain?

    Hi everyone!

    I'm a 25 year old male from england with a concern.

    Almost a year ago - to the day! I found a "very small" pin prick sized lump at the top of my right testical,this lump was painless but of course needed to be checked out. I went to see my GP and she gave me an examination,and told me that she could not feel anything but wanted to pass my case onto my local hospital where they could double check.

    Anyway long story cut short, I think I saw an urologist? ( Where I had to sit down on a bed and they put this gel around my testicals, which brought up this image of the area of concern up on a screen?) - they did a 30 minute search of the area and gave me the all clear and told me that it was not cancer,but a small bump that had been developed by all the cycling I have done over the years.

    ...Now onto today.

    About ten days ago,while I was going to the toilet, I noticed that my right testical felt very tender when it was touched.I didn't think anything of it at the time and forgot about it until four days ago when I noticed that it was still very painful when I felt it. I can't explain the feeling to be honest,the best way to put it would be to say that its that same feeling that guys feel when you get hit in them.It only hurts when I touch it, and I can't feel that small lump that I went in for last year at all now, but something is just not right. I gave myself an exam while in the bath about a month ago and everything felt alright then,but now the right one feels too tender for me to tell if theres anything new growing on it or not.

    I'm making an appointment today to see my doctor as soon as I can,but it still doesn't help me fearing the worst. - Has anyone got any advice?

    All the best.

    It's good to hear you had an ultrasound that didn't show anything suspicious last year. Can you think of any other reasons for the tenderness now? I'll be surprised if it's cancer, but it's good you're planning to check with your doctor.
