Discomfort in left testicle & in my left side
I've been experiencing discomfort in my left testicle since around June of 2009. It's pulling up on a year now. In June, I started to feel some pains, but not bad pains. Just a dull ache, and for the longest time I thought it was testicular cancer, even though there was and is still no lump on it.
Since then, the pain hasn't gotten any worse. Same dull ache that happens some days and doesn't happen on others. Since then though, I've also been feeling like a slight discomfort / slight burning sensation in my left side. I started to worry in February about this, so I began to google like a madman and read that pain in your left side along with testicular pain indicates that it can be cancer spreading...
I don't necessarily have testicular pain, just slight discomfort. I worried about it, so I went to see a doctor (I'm 18 years old). My doctor felt around it and told me there are no lumps, no swelling or anything that would really indicate that it's testicular cancer, so he just passed it off as nothing and told me to take Motrin every now and then if it's really bothering me. I did not have an ultrasound done, just a physical examination.
I notice at times that it's a little bit smaller than my right testicle, and it hangs lower as well. My question is, if I did have testicular cancer in my left testicle for about a full year now, would I be in some pain with severe symptoms by now?
