  • Sharing my experience

    Hi Guys.

    Just thought i'd share my experience as reading some of the posts on the forums helped me, thought i'd give something back from my own personal experience.

    I found a lump just above my right testicle and had put it off for about 6 months or so. It didnt cause any pain so i thought it couldnt be harmful. Not too long ago i started to get a dull ache, and some inflamation. So i read up on it, came to these forums and got alot of great info. After worrying sick I made an appointment with my doctor. He said it felt like a cyst so i was releived. He said he would send me to get an ultrasound just to be sure, he said it was very rare for a cyst to contain a tumour or be cancerous which gave me some more relief.

    I got my ultrasound today, and while the doctor was doing the ultra sound, i asked him if it looked ok, just trying to comfort myself. He said it was a cyst, and there was nothing to lose any sleep over.

    After that whole episode i must say i am very glad i went to the doctor to get it checked out. It is worth the peace of mind.

    Hope it helps any of u guys who are having similar issues and worried about getting it checked out.

    I have yet to go to my doctor to talk about the ultrasound, so i will give you guys an update on that also.

    Hi optimistic.
    Thanks for sharing your story and congratulations on the ultrasound result. Your message to and go get checked if in doubt, is the single most important piece of information anyone can get.
    Check in again after your visit to the doc.

    Best wishes
