  • A small structure near one of the testicle after 5 years

    Good morning everyone,
    My name is Jacob, I got treated in 2018 for the Testicular cancer, is about 5 years of being free from Cancer (Had Chemo and RPLND Surgery). I don't know if things changed, as for last days I'm a feeling a pain in abdomen, and when I analyse myself the testicles, I felt a separate structure that's round like and smaller than a rice seed which is near to one the testicle. I don't know what's it seems to be. As it's not over the testicle and separate small structure, what should it be? Have anyone experienced it ?

    Thank you all and appreciate your feedback​

    Hi Jacob,

    I would assume that with any certainty, that having a scrotal ultrasound will be the only way to know for sure what is going on. It could be a scrotal pearl if it can be moved around, for example, and not testicular cancer but if anything the scrotal ultrasound would at least bring peace of mind.

    Oct. 2005 felt lump but waited over 7 months.

      Thank you, I'll could be getting checked with blood markers and then an Ultrasound, to make it sure. I will update over the topic.

        I did a blood work, the tumor markers are normal whereas the LDH value is elevated a bit. That is 300(U/L)

          LDH is an indicator of inflamation (could be in any part of your body) not really a cancer marker, I'd say you are good, but might be good to take a close look at anything that feels odd. I would not be very concerned at this point.

            Thank you for giving this insight, is about 5 years after RPLND. I had the tumor in lymph node(near left kidney) and both the testicles are unaffected. So I have it both. And there is some discomfort lately. I will be doing some scanning in coming days to figure it out. I will update on it later.
            Have a nice weekend
