  • i think i have testicular cancer

    im 15 and i have like a growth on my left testicle its been there for a while. ive had physicals and i thought they might say something about it if they were concerned about it but noone has said anything. i really havent though about it much but then i was reading something on the internet and it caught my eye. i was shocked and i decided to look into it more. im kinda worried cuz its been there a while and sometimes it has a dull pain im not sure if its from physical activity or what. im not really sure who to talk to about gettin checked out i know i should tell my parents but im understandably nervous. im not sure what to do.

    Hi, Joe. We all need to ask directly about symptoms that worry us instead of hoping our doctors discover them without our help.

    You already do know what to do: tell one of your parents and have your doctor or a urologist check it out. It may be nothing serious, but why take an unnecessary chance?
