  • Heres My Situation In Detail

    OK just got out of the shower and this is what it is ...

    Left testicle- larger than my right considerably, a bump thats squishy in the testicle at the very top, LARGE veiny worm like cords all througout mostly behind and under my testicle and some connected to it, can be seen from the outside looks honestly like worms. 10 months like this with an on and off ache usually later in the day

    Right testicle- seems to have shrunk, same bump as the right only not as big, also there are those wormy veins only not as LARGE as the lefts, 10 months aswell

    other symptoms- on and off pain in leg, also on and off numbness in left leg when sitting down.

    Best advice I can give right now is hang in there until Friday! Youve already done the right thing by getting the urologists appointment.

    I wouldnt assume you have TC just yet as theres many many other (more common) conditions that can affect us 'down there'. If they do suspect TC they'll probably get you to have an ultrasound scan and some blood tests as the next step after the appointment, but for now try not to worry too much.

    Good luck,

    Left I/O March 05, nonseminoma;
    Relapse July 05, single lymph node 3cm;
    2 x BEP Aug / Sept 05, node grown to 4.7cm;
    2 x VeIP Sept / Oct, node grown to 6.7cm, markers normalised;
    RPLND Dec 05, no active cancer;
    back on surveillance

      Maybe a varicocele, but you should find out tomorrow. I'll be surprised if it turns out to be cancer. Good luck, and keep us posted.
      right inguinal orchiectomy 6/5/2003 > nonseminoma, stage I > surveillance > L-RPLND 6/24/2005 for recurrence, suspected teratoma but found seminoma, stage II > chylous ascites until 9/2005 > surveillance and "all clear" since
