    Most lumps or bumps are cysts or calcium deposits. I would go to the doctor and let him make an exact determination as to what it is.
    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.

      Go to the doctor bro, just to be safe. As was said by dadmo, most abnormalities that you can detect are NOT cancer. But...if it is cancer the earlier it is found the easier the cure. You can save yourself some very rough stuff like chemotherapy if the cancer is removed early enough. Also, FYI they make fake testicles that look like the real thing these days.

      TC 1
      Right I/O-- 12-5-00 (seminoma, teratoma, embryonal, yolk sak)
      RPLND-- 12-29-00 (All Clear)
      Recurrence-- 4-22-01 (3 mets in right lung-- biggest 3cm, small met on pancreas, one lymph node enlarged-- 2x normal)
      Chemotherapy-- started 4-30-01, 3xBEP
      TC 2
      Left I/O-- 7-19-06 (seminoma)
      Hormone replacement therapy-- Androgel

        If you found a lump... go to a doctor as soon as possible, insist on an ultrasound and blood test. It may be a bit uncomfortable and/or embarrassing, but if you have t/c it's best to find out early. The cure rate is pretty close to 100% if they catch it before it spreads... after it spreads, of course your odds of being cured go down.
