I am a teen male and I have discovered a lump on my left testicle. It doesn't seem to hurt at all, but during my past six months or so my testicles have been really itchy. The lump is reasonably small, but feels a bit big. I suffer from anxiety, so typical of me, I am really worried about this. I am too embarrassed to tell anyone, including my parents, and I really don't want to go to a doctor. I am a virgin, and I have never been sexually active with another, so I know for sure this isn't an STI. But I am really freaked out. Is this a sign of Testicular Cancer?
I have been worried all day, because this morning it seemed to be very noticeable. I know I should see a doctor, but I'm too afraid of what they may think, and I am really embarrassed to expose myself, no matter what gender the doctor is. Am I overreacting? I have read other discussions about a similar thing, and some to be nothing big, so that made me feel a bit better. But still, I am really worried. Please, what should I do, and what is this?
Oh and I should point out, its on the outside of them and it looks similar to a pimple/zit. :c but i think its been there for a while, but now its more noticeable. do you think this could just be a zit or a pimple? I have recently got a lot of acne on my forehead, and random places on my face, so i'm looking on the brightside and thinking that that might be what it is. fingers cross.
