  • Sharp Pain

    im 15, and recently have began having sharp and long pain in one testicle. once i was kicked in the lower region, and ever since, one of my testicles hasn't quite been the same shape and now it's enlarged. could this be TC?

    It sounds as though it's more likely to be an injury than cancer, but it's still a good idea to tell a parent and probably have a doctor check things out.

      but i did show both parents before, and they said it's probably nothing and that one could well just be smaller than the other. so they know im concerned about it, but i dont know what to say to the doctor

        Just tell him exactly what you posted here: you're getting sharp pains in one testicle.

          Take control and tell them you need want to go to the doctor. I assume that they'll listen, but if not I would personally over exaggerate the pain till they did.

          Sound like it's not TC, but whatever is causing the pain needs to be addressed.

            I know a lot of guys have little or no pain with their TC, but personally I had a lot of sharp pain, so much so that I went to the E/R. Apparently I had an inflammation in addition to the tumor. Although it sounds like an injury, you should probably ask your parents to take you to the doctor to make sure it isn't TC. And even if it is an injury, it could be something that requires medical attention. I remember hearing some nasty things that can explain sharp pain in the testicles before the docs figured out it was a tumor/inflammation. Finally, I'd recommend going to a urologist if possible because they see more cases of testicular problems (TC or otherwise) than any general practitioner.

              I had swelling followed by intermitent, but sharp, pains in my left testicle. Go straight to a urologist if your parents' insurance allows. He or she will be much more familar with testicular cancer symptoms.

              Remember though, it's still a rare disease and there's a good chance it's not what you have.
