    I can sympathize with you. I am in the same position, though my possible symptoms are different (and not as large in scale.) it is still something that has me worried. I am going to a doctor as soon as one can get me in. It would be best you do the same. So we can both sleep at night. Sleep is good.

      Hi, i'm a new member,

      I have exactly the same thing on the top of my right testical. (spelling, sorry). Everytime i feel it it gives me a discomfort for the next few days then i'm fine. Have this feeling in my mind that somethings not right, so whenever i think about it, it doesn't feeling right!

      I'm going to book to see my doctor to make sure.

        All of you on this thread, what are you waiting for? Do you have tc? I bet not, but get checked out. All your worries will be gone with a simple visit to your local doctor.

          I agree. All three of you need to get to the doctor. ASAP. Worrying and doing nothing will not improve the situation.

          CALL FOR AN APPOINTMENT TODAY.

          Good luck,

            ok, thanks dadmo and fish, I did call up my local surgery to make an appiotment that i can't put off. Only thing is they told me to come to their walk in practice in the morning. Would have rathered to make the appiotment that i can't get out of. BUT I WILL go, thanks for giving us alittle push.

              I made an appointment for friday. I'm not one to back out of commitments. As well as liking my doctor. She's really nice. Again, I hope that mine turns out to be something else. (Hopefully solve a few other problems in the process.)

                I'm sure you guy's will be ok. But whenever you heave health problems get them taken care of as soon as possible. Remember, bad news doesn't get better with age.

                  I know, I have always been broke and had the "walk it off" mentality inbued on me by my parents. I hope that even if nothing is wrong, this may have shaken them up enough to realize that sometimes "walk it off" doesn't work.

                    Another call for you all to go get it checked! I know it may be scary, could be a little embarrassing, but it's by far the best thing to do. Look at it this way:

                    1. Chances are it is not TC (8,000 cases per year in the U.S.)
                    2. If you are in the minority and it is, it is hugely beneficial to catch it early.

                    I was concerned about irregularities in my left testicle so much that I had doctors check it twice in the last five years. I had a hernia/hydrocele at birth and surgery to fix that at five, so that side never was the same as the right. Both times, the doctors said it was fine.

                    Earlier this year, I noticed more irregularities, specifically, an enlargement and hardening of the left testicle. I put a doctor's visit off for awhile because I had already been twice before.

                    Well, this time it was the real thing. I had it out and the prognosis is good so far. I wished I had gone sooner and I hope it won't eventually come back to bite me.

                    So, get to those doctors immediately for peace of mind and ownership of your own health!
