  • Question on TC

    hey im 15 and yesterday i noticed a very small bump on my right testicle i mean very small i have to search for sometimes 15econds before i can find it although it is not on the left one so i though it may be dangerous also yesterdsay an aching pain has arrisen out of the right one this is due to touching it as it has become very sensitive to touch unlike the left one i just want to know what other people think as to go over it again it is an aching pain in the right testicle when touched and is always very faintly there also a very small bump not pee sized or anyting that i didnt notice there before. Thanks

    Do a self exam the way it is described here . When you finish if you still have concerns tell your parents and have them make a doctors appointment. It's never wrong to take your health concerns to a doctor. My guess is that you're being a bit too aggressive in your exams and you have irritated the area.
    Son Jason diagnosed 4/30/04, stage III. Right I/O 4/30/04. Graduated College 5/13/04. 4XEP 6/7/04 - 8/13/04. Full open RPLND 10/13/04. All Clear since.

      Question on TC

      hey i posted here on a different account a while back but forgot the name that i thought i may have TC, i went to the hospital and they scaned me, they said that they couldn't see any source for the ache i have been getting and to come back in 3 month, it has persisted for these 3 months and im sure they are wrong although i can find no big lump only 1 very small 1 i some times loose track of, i still have the constant ache though, what do you think?

        I merged your new post with your previous one. Good work getting in to have things checked out. Did you cut back on the self-examination frequency to make sure you aren't causing the ache? When are you scheduled for the follow-up appointment?
