  • question about tc

    hello everyone, well im a 17 year old male who has never had any problems with this kind of stuff but maybe like a week ago i got this like burning pain in my penis at first i thought that it was only gonna last for the day but it didnt so i sorta got worried(this doesnt last all day it just comes and goes)...but i also feel this pain in my testicles but mostly in my right testicle but ive examined my testicles and it really doesnt feel like a feels like a bunch of veins just bunched up at the tip of my testicle but im not sure.. im not so scared though because i know that if it is tc the possibilities of bieng cured are like 70 to 100% but i would like some insight of what this might be......oh and i also wanted to know what kind of doctors i should see? help would be greatly appreciated!

    It sounds as though it's more likely to be an infection than cancer, but you should talk to your doctor about it. You'll probably be fine seeing a general practioner, but the appropriate specialist is a urologist.

      Welcome to the forum.

      Burning during urination is not a symptom of TC, but can be a symptom of other potentially serious problems, such as infections. It sounds like what you're feeling by your testicle is the epididymus, which is a highly coiled tube for sperm transport.

      You should go to a urologist as soon as possible, if you have an infection you need to get it taken care of right away.

      Best wishes,

      Tho' much is taken, much abides; and though we are not now that strength which in old days moved earth and heaven; that which we are, we are; one equal temper of heroic hearts, made weak by time and fate, but strong in will; to strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield.

          Good job contacting a urologist. I agree with Scott and Fish it doesn't sound like tc but no matter what it is it needs to be taken care of. Again good job calling the doctor.
          Son Jason diagnosed 4/30/04, stage III. Right I/O 4/30/04. Graduated College 5/13/04. 4XEP 6/7/04 - 8/13/04. Full open RPLND 10/13/04. All Clear since.

          Treated by Dr. Rakowski of Midland Park, NJ. Visited Sloan Kettering for protocol advice. RPLND done at Sloan Kettering.
