  • Erm. Dunno what's goin on!

    I'm 15.

    On Saturday I started feeling a pain in my left testicle. I couldn't sit properly and got winded too because the pain was so strong.

    I informed my mum and she booked me for the doctors today! However, I didn't want some doctor poking around with my manhood if nothing was wrong so told my mum that it's better now.

    Well, it's not. I've had this pain all wekk. My left testicle hangs more than the other one and there's a weird feeling that I can't describe. I haven't checked for lumps or anything as of yet.

    Anyone know what to do?

    Yes, and so do you. Tell your mother it's not better after all and have the doctor check it out. Also, follow this link for self-examination instructions. Keep us posted.

      If you poke around through this site you'll see lots of posts from young guys either afraid to tell their parents or afraid to be examined. You already took 2 big steps....realizing something's not as it should be, and telling your mum. Doctors examine the "manhood" of every male they see for a physical. To them it's just another body part. You've shown maturity in what you've done so far...please follow up with the appointment.

          Wise decision. I know it's incredibly frightening....but remember TC is rare and most importantly it is HIGHLY curable. Please post after your appointment. Make sure you and/or your mom push for an ultrasound if one isn't ordered. It's quick and painless and will best tell what's going on. We're behind you....you'll be fine.

              Just got back. Wasn't nothing to be nervous about because it only took about 3 minutes. He said I had something beginning with S at the front and back of the left one. Gave me some tablet for em and said it might be just an infection.

                  It may have sounded like an "s" but the word was probably cyst. That's good news but keep up those monthly checks.

                    Yeah, I think that was it. It said it's only minor anyway!
