  • Lump

    I have a small lump on my left testicle. I havent been to worried about it until just recently. I have had it for about a year and it hasnt really grown in size that much if any. It isnt hard but more like a soft extension. It makes my left testicle kind of make a point at the bottom. My friends dad recently got testicular cancer so I am getting worried. Please someone shed some light on my situation.

    It's most likley a cyst but it should still be checked by a doctor. You can never be too careful.
    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.

      Im 21 and after a year and a half of dealing with tc it seems it is finally over. I waited way too long to get it checked out and it ended up spreading all the way to my lungs. Just to be safe you should definately get it checked out otherwise if it is problematic it could become a much bigger problem later (like in my case). However, don't worry too much. A significant amount of lumps on or around the testicle turn out to be harmless. Doing nothing will not make it go away, get it checked out and don't make the same mistake I did.
