  • ultrasounds-how good are they?

    Hello, I found a small lump on one of my testicals about 10 years ago. Went to family doc, he felt it and said dont worry about it. Well thats easy for him to say. A few years later went to a differnet doc and hey said the same thing.Well about 2001 went to a uroligst, had a ultarsound and hey said it is not solid? but in the next 3 mounts i had 3 done at this hospital. Dont worry about it. 2002 went to a differnt hospital and new uroligst had ultarsound and
    said it was nothing. Does anyone know how good a ultasound is. Should I go esle where. If it was T.C. woudl it of grown in 10 years, i would think.

    It sounds as though you've had multiple ultrasounds that have shown only a cyst. I'd keep up the monthly self-examinations but assume that the ultrasounds are correct.
    right inguinal orchiectomy 6/5/2003 > nonseminoma, stage I > surveillance > L-RPLND 6/24/2005 for recurrence, suspected teratoma but found seminoma, stage II > chylous ascites until 9/2005 > surveillance and "all clear" since
