  • Urologist question

    Last year about this time I went and seen a urologist for frequent pain when urinating/ejaculating. I had to do an exam, a DRE, and a kidney ultrasound. He said it had a very slight chance of being cancer, but it wasn't very likely. He also ordered another ultrasound, but I had to cancel. I got sick again, and seen my normal doctor, who tried a urethra swab for an STD (negative) and a prostate massage before urination.

    Now they have asked me to see the urologist, AGAIN. What is the purpose of this appointment? They mentioned a ultrasound. Is it the kidney ultrasound again? Should they be checking for cancer? I have a pain in my testicles, but they usually only wory about the pain after urination. Are there any other tests I should mention or expect from this appointment?

    Welcome, Maverick. Painful ejaculation can be a symptom of prostate cancer, but not as far as I know of testicular cancer.
    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
