  • 10 Years Out

    Had TC in Jan of 96. Right removed, left brought down. I don't produce sperm because of Sertoli Cell Only Syndrome, therefore major infertility issues. Testosterone is all over the place - currently on Androgel pump going to 7.5mg/day.

    DX - Stage 1 Seminoma, w/ Rad TX. Starting to experience pain in left testicle but pain on my right side which is very strange because there is nothing there. Have had no problems since 96 but pain is increasing quite "noticably" over the past day.

    Anyone have any ideas. Docs getting me right in but now I'm getting nervous. Can't feel anything in the left, but I could not feel anything in my right testicle either when I first was diagnosed.

    Great forums - can be helpful to see what others are experiencing.

    Well, one possibility is that it's "referred pain," which could be caused by a pinched back nerve, urinary stone, kidney stones, or pancreatitis. Let us know what you find out.

    Oh, and congratulations on ten years of survivorship!!
