    My Names carson im 17 yeras old. ive had a lump attached to my right testicle for many years now. i think its grown a bit its half the size of my right testticle. Ive been afraid to talk anyone about this because quite simply i dont want to be diagnosed with cancer. What i need to no is, is it cancer or not. its attached to the testicle and it is quite big. ive been reading threads on this website and it sounds like i have Tc . Hopefully with some guidance and help from you my friends. i can work this out.
    Thanks
    Carson.

    Hi, Carson. If you've had it for many years, I suspect it's something less serious than cancer, but the only way to be sure -- and get treatment if needed -- is to visit a doctor.

      Its kinda awkward to tell my parents or anyone. how should i go about this. what kinda doctore do i need to see. id rather go straight to the doctore who can diagnose it then to a medical clinic.

        The right specialist is a urologist. It may seem awkward to tell a parent, but you can do it.

          Hi Carson,

          My son was 17 and came home three days before the Christmas holiday - it was 1 a.m. and in one breath he said..."I'm so stressed out about selecting a college, the soccer recruit, finals...all I want to do is go skiing (we had a trip planned for the 26th)..and by the way, my left testicle feels heavier, firmer...does that mean anything?" I got him a doctor's appointment the next day. I can't tell you how proud I was that he told me. And...how happy he was that he didn't wait.

          Go for it...good luck!
