  • Update on my doctors visit

    Here is my last post for reference
    "I am really curious as well I have a a pea shaped thing Right next to the chord thing but still on the testicle(on the right testical). I am all worried today I haven't paid it attention in a while. I had it the last time I was at the doctors but I don't think he noticed it because of its position. See He thinks I have varocosile (he said bag of worms) on the left one. he said no testicular cancer but, he was fresh out of school. Now this on the right how long is still early? It may have been there a couple of years.

    Whats the success rate, I don't want to die."

    So I went to the doctor this was just one thing as I have had some severe panic attacks lately and the stress was being felt in my heart.

    It turned out that it was just the cap that the cord attaches to on the testicle. I feel so stupid. Although I still have varicosile (however spelled) in one and shouldn't be a problem. the varicosele prevents me from feeling that one so when I felt the bump I freaked out.

    P.S. I will try to come by every now and then. I have for the last two years worn a livestrong band and will not remove it and will continue to support the search for a cure for cancer.

      Congratulations on the good news!

      You're not stupid - you were concerned about your health and acted proactively and got it checked. Actually, I wish more people were like that.

      Good to hear you're supporting the fight against cancer!
