    Hi all,

    I`m new to this forum.
    Just to say i had TC in January 2003. I went straight to hospital thinking
    i had a torsion, the doctor there said it was probably an infection but sent me to the operating theatre just in case.
    When i came back to the ward after my operation the consultant said it looked like an infection and sent me home with antibiotics and said it should
    clear up in about a week.
    After a week the left testicle was still enlarged, so i spoke to one of the doctors where i work in a different hospital he was not too pleased with the
    treatment i recieved and sent me for an ultrasound scan and the results came
    back 2 days later and said it was a tumour and had my testicle removed the next day.
    Results came back pretty quick the next day and said i had a seminoma,
    so as a precaution had 10 days Radiotherapy.
    I am still having check ups every 6 months, chest x-rays,blood tests etc.,
    and everything is fine. Thank god i had contacts, it could have been worse.

    All the best to everyone
