  • Hello, I have a question.

    I did a Self exam a couple days ago, and it seems like there is a lump or something on the bottem of my testicle, behind the testicle. I thought at first I was feeling that tube like thing, but I checked my right testicle and I didn't feel any thing at that same spot. Also it seems like it disappears at times... Idk it's hard to explain. Like I got it a few seconds ago, checked and it didn't SEEM to be there. I'm not sure about it. I'm a very scared and nervous person, and I always worry if it's cancer... What if they can't cure it ect... I'm sorry for being so depressing...

    Aslo, this question doesn't have to be answered. I'm just wondering how long a person with TC MIGHT survive, if left untreated? JC, any input would be appreciated... Thank you

    The odds are that there's nothing wrong, but if you aren't sure, you should check with your doctor. Testicular cancer is often cured in even advanced cases, but it's much easier when caught early.

    There's no need to jump to "what if?" questions. Except maybe, "What if I live today with a smile on my face, take good care of myself, and do something unexpected to help someone else?"
