  • Dont know what to do (im 15 yrs old)

    I recently last night after taking a shower i discovered a small lump (little smaller then a pea) on the top back part of my left testicle. where all the cords are it feels like its attached to my testicle it is firm but i dont think it really hurts i cant tell if its attached to the cords. How should i tell my paretns that i want to get examed by a doctor? im really scared to tell them. VERY SCARED

    Just tell them...dont waste your time on thinking what you`re going to do.
    You are only 15! So your parents must be worried on getting you to a doctor...tell them now, im sure they will understand! Good luck!

    PS: Im also a guy with 19...i had the same problem as you. Believe in me, its worse if you dont tell.

          Jesse, I hope you already read the "sticky" post with advice about breaking the ice. Don't torture yourself over it, but get up right now, find one of your parents, and just say, "Mom (or Dad), I found a lump on one of my testicles, and I think I should have a doctor check it out to make sure it's OK."

                Yeah, I understand. If it were "arm" or "nose," it would be different. It may seem a little awkward, but you'll be glad you did it.

                  scott what do you think will happen if it is TC? is it very easy to get rid of? what if its in 2nd stage and has spread or something? is it yet easy to treat? im still VERY scared about what a doctor will tell me? should i be scared if he tells me i got cancer? is this cancer very dangerous or very easily cured?

                      Jesse, the odds are in your favor that what you're feeling is something other than testicular cancer, but it's always best to play it safe and get a lump checked out. Testicular cancer can usually be cured, and the sooner it is discovered, the less treatment it takes.

                      We've got a great group of people here who are ready, willing, and able to help.

                      Let us know what happens next.

                            Jesse,
                            Your Mom and Dad will understand- and God will too.
                            Try not to worry about how others will react. You have no idea of what you are dealing with until you get it checked out.
                            I hope to read a post after you see a doctor THIS WEEK.
                            Go and get it checked out, and remember the odds are with you.
                            Stage III. Embryonal Carcinoma, Mature Teratoma, Choriocarcinoma.
