  • Went to the doctor today

    I have a small bump attached to my right testicle and also this patch of veins on the left side. I also have these small white oval shaped things almost attached to my pubic hair but I didn't say anything about it. It would be too overwhelming saying something about all three of my conditions at once...I dunno how I got this unlucky. I have all this and I'm a virgin. I'm getting an ultrasound soon to inspect possible TC, but what should I do about this other thing (maybe pubic lice? I dunno)? It's hard to bare all of this at once.

    The patch of veins is normal, for some guys there just more noticable. The white oval shaped things are most likely hair folicles, if they move get to the dr. now. The bump on the testicle should be checked but it's probably a small calcification or a cyst, nothing to really worry about but get it checked. Let us know when you have an appointment.

      Ok I had the appointment and am going to get an ultrasound in a day or two. Now I don't think I'm as worried about the testicular part as much as the white things. I guess the chance of it being lice is really slim but I don't know what else it could be. They're on my hair and some have moved. My mom doesn't believe that anything is wrong besides the bumps so i don't know what to do. My scrotum feels itchy a lot and sometimes sticky, it's strange.

        I don't think you need to worry about cancer but you should check this site for information on pubic lice. http://kidshealth.org/parent/infecti...ubic_lice.html

          I've read a lot about pubic lice and I thought I might have it too but my mom just doesn't believe me. She says, "you only get it from scumbags" and all this random stuff. So she refuses to do anything about it. It does seem unlikely but I guess it is possible. Should I tell the people who are doing the ultrasound about it? That seems like the only option I have. Oh yeah I forgot to add something. I think I've had these white things for a decent amount of time, like maybe half a year or so, so wouldn't they have gotten red by now from the lice? They've never really changed color so it seems even unlikelier that it isn't pubic lice.

            Tell your doctor and the people doing the ultrasound everything you're worried about. They can check all of your physical issues and give you a full report.
