  • good news

    I went to see the good doc today. I was scared, but I managed to go through with it. I told him about the lump, he checked it out and immediatly told me that it is common. It is a biuld up of fluid. He told me the medical name, but I cannot remember what it is called. I will call his office and get the official name. Anywho, after he checked it out, he went about his business writing stuff in my file and I was kinda asking questions, he finally said, "if you would like an ultra sound to ease your mind, I will refer you." of course I said, "ok" and i have an utlra sound scheduled for the 8th of Nov.

    So I am so relieved about this. For anyoen that would like to know the history, I have a lump on my right teste on the top. It did the flashlight test, wich it gave a shadow, but not like the teste itself. I also did the bathtub test and it didnt float. There were no other symptoms (back pain, enlarged teste, breast growth). the only way i can explain the lump is that it isnt inside the teste. imagine a clump of playdough. now imagin taking another lump and sticking it to the top near the tube that comes down and ataches to the teste. it almost remids me of a branch on a tree. it is somewaht solid but it is bendable. I hope explination helps ease soem other guys minds.

    Let me just say that getting checked out is no big deal. just do it. I would have gladly rubbed the docs nuts after he gave me the good news. man, what a load off my mind. If anyone would like to ask quotions outside of this forum, id be glad to answer them. My email address is [email protected]

    Peace and love,

    Hey, Jason, did you have the ultrasound, and did it confirm what your doctor told you?
