  • Just Got the Pathology Report

    I don't have cancer!

    It was a benign Leydig cell hyperplasia.

    Thank you to everyone who contributed all the information that eased my mind and helped me through this cancer scare, especially the moderators. This is a wonderful forum with some terrific, unselfish people who always seem willing to help.

    I wish you all the very best.

                I am sure your Dr told you, You do want to check yourself often, as Leydig, can pop up again.
                Could not of said it better.
                Any changes needs to be addressed to your doctor. ASAP
                Anyway good luck
                Stage II seminoma and nonseminoma cancer 2005. HCG was 21,000.00 when it was suppose to be below 5.0- Lost one testical, 4 rounds of BEP, cancer free since last CT-Scan. But I was stupid. I let it go for nearly a year before seeing a doctor. If I had known about this site in 2004 I might have avoided all this!

                  Thanks for the info; my doctor didn't tell me. I'm sure he's a fine surgeon, but he's not big on communication. That's why this forum is so invaluable.

                  Thanks again everyone.
