  • what are the options with a benign tumor?

    diagnosed with a benign tumor by ultrasound and about to go to the urologist. but before i go, i wonder what my options are. the nurse told me a biopsy probably needs to be done. does this mean a removal of the testicle? what are my options with a benign tumor? can i just leave it alone. thanks for any feedback.

    Why do they believe it to be a benign tumor? How do they know? Ask more questions!
