  • 5 months since i went to dr

    Hi im 15 and in june i found a rlly small bump on my right testicle b/c i was having a pain like i had been kicked and it hadnt gone away. It went away the next day and life went on. However, the next week i had knee surgery and while recovering i found a swollen lymph node in my right groin area (which still hasnt gone away). Once i started walking again i was having some dull groin and thigh pains (which now have mostly gone away, but i have some discomfort at times). I did see a dr in july and he told me that what i was feeling was normal. Within the next week teh lump got a little bigger to the size of a BB but hasnt grown since (still same size now). It feels like it might be attatched to the testicle, but it is right where the epididymis meets the testy itself so i cant tell. I also had back pain for a few weeks but that 2 has gone away. Also, none of the pain ive had has been horrible, mostly dull and ending within a few days. My question is based on wat ive said, could it still be TC or by now would i have had more visible symptoms by now???

    Tc and the Symptoms of Tc react a little differently in each person. Some of the symptoms you have are consistent with TC but are also symptoms of many,many other illnesses.The chances you have TC are slim to none and having TC at your age is even a bigger long shot. 1 fact will remain the same--Until you have yourself checked againyou are going to second gues the original diagnosis every time you have any mild pain or ache. Have yourself checked once again and jsut to put your mind at ease go to a different doctor for the exam. If you get a clean bill of health from 2 different doctors then I would put this out of your mind and enjoy the rest of your life(don't forget to check yourself monthly). Lots of Luck!!!!!!!! DON

      Nicely said yvonne, i went to the doctors 20 minutes ago infact. I went to Dr 4 months ago cause i was getting pains etc, and i was very nervous!!!!!!!! but it pays off as they are very welcoming beleive it or not. Anyway i have a bb size on mine atm (right testicle) although it wasnt growing but hurting. I also have this like tangly wire around it aswell, which i have no idea about.. but he said it can be normal in some cases O_O which im very glad to hear, but he then said that its most likely to be a cyst and pritty damn sure.
      Thing is i aint told my mum yet >___< and im 16 which is driving me in sane.
      Although i got a scan in a couple of weeks coming up, with a letter popping through door. So looks like i'll be found out, cause the mum always opens me post -.-. Anyways go to the doctor and get a scan to be safe. It is nervous for the first time and kinda on the second, but you'll feel alot better once seeing him.
