  • Cyst on outside of left testicle

    I am 19 yrs old and i have had this for 2yrs (when i was 17). The cyst is kinda white in color and is just a couple milimeters big. I went to a doctor about it about a month after it appeared, and all he said was if it got bigger or changed shape i should come back and let him know. Well it hasnt changed shape, but im still worried. I dont have the insurance to go see the same doctor about it to get it rechecked out, but i came here and just wanted some advice and such. Could it be just a ingrown hair or something?

    Hi, Bryan. What you've described is definitely not testicular cancer. Does this description seem to fit?

        Don't mess with can get an infection. If it gets bigger and bothers you it can be removed.
