    Are they home right now? This would be a good time. Seriously, you don't need to wait for a "right time." Just blurt it out.
    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

      Scott is totally right. Now is the time to tell them. If you had
      a sore throat you wouldn't think twice about telling them.
      This is no different.

      Please don't hesitate to tell your parents about any medical
      symptoms you have.

        As parents it doesn't matter what part of our childrens body is hurting we just want to have it fixed ASAP.. You may feel a little embarrassed due to the location of the problem--Don't be---- Doctors see these kinds of things and worse on a daily basis... They are not there to pass judgement or make fun of you.. they are their to help!!!!! Good Luck!!!
