  • left testical very painful when aroused. lump on the back of it

    I have been experiencing pain in my left testical for about a week. a few days ago, it got so bad, I could barely walk. Yesterday I noticed that the back of my testical had a painful lump on the back of it. last year, I had a vasectomy. At that time (a few weeks after my vasectomy) I experienced simular pain and I also had a swollen lump in the same place as I do now. It went a way though, and it didn't seem to affect my sex life. A week ago when I started feeling the pain my wife and I were really sexually active, a lot more than normal. On top of that I was also masterbating. That's when I started feeling the pain, and then it just got progressively worse. So I decided to stop for a while. Now, I notice this swollen lump on the back side of my left testical. It's really sensitive and, today, the first day in a week I desided to do anything sexually, I started feelling deep pain when I felt like I was about to have an orgasm which I never did. So I've made an appointment with a doctor for monday, but I'm so terrified that it might be testicular cancer that I've been searching the internet for answers, when I stumbled upon this site. Any helpful advice would be appreciated. Thank you

    It's more likely to be an infection than cancer, but seeing the doctor is the right thing to do in any case. Good luck!
