  • Hard Small Lump

    33 years old

    On the 24th of Sept, I was showering and accidently found a small hard lump on my right testicle. It is perhaps the size of a bb, mostly painless, and definately on the Testicle itself. No other symptoms . I went to the GP Dr. on the 26th, he confirmed that the lump is on the testicle, immediately referred me to a Urologist, but told me not to worry as it could be several conditions. He said that if it were TC then they could just cut out the Testicle and I would be ok, since it is such a small lump.....

    I am having my US tomorrow at 11 and meeting with the Urologist at 3. I am preparing myself for bad news, but the thing is that I was just at the Dr in August for a physical and they found nothing when doing the Testicular exax.

    Anyone elses TC start with a small bb sized hard lump that came out of no where?. Just cant image that it is anything else, unless it is a cyst or calcium....just reading up before a pleasant day of testing..

The US is no big deal actualy if ya get a good looking nurse like i did its nice. but i digress...
