  • Help please!!?

    Hello everyone, I need someone to help me here and tell me whether I have a problem. Recently I took a hard knock to my testis playing football, that whole area was sore and even a little swollen for a few days, when it was hurting most I remembered about the TC self examination and decided to check it out, I did and I have found two small soft lumps at the top of each testicle, I am very worried I may have TC because they won't go away, I am only 16 and haven't found the courage to tell my parents about this yet Is this normal because I didn't know about them if it is?

    Thanx a lot in advance...

    Do both testicles seem the same? While it's not impossible, it's very rare to have cancer in both testicles at the same time. Could you be feeling the epididymis, a normal structure that transports sperm away from the testicle? You may want to see a doctor just to be sure, especially after that football accident.
