    Testicular cancer questions.

    I have noticed a lump type thing around my right testicle. It is not that big, but im not sure if its supposed to be there. I cant really remember if I have ever felt it there before, but for some reason it seems out of place.

    I know there are a bunch of tubes and stuff in the scrotum, but are there supposed to be any solid object type things aside from testicles? It does not really hurt or anything, and aside from the lump itself I have not noticed any side effects.

    I am 23 and I know testicular cancer is popular at this age, so that is why I ask. Would a regualr family ddoctor be able to tell me if anything is wrong, or do I have to go to a urologist type person? Thanks.

    I also forgot to mention, the lump doesnt seem to be part of the testicle itself, but kind of beside it. Not sure if this is an bovious question, but does testicular cancer only happen IN the testicles, or around them as well?

    Your regular physician can at least give you an idea if it is a normal lump or not. My husband felt one a year ago and his regular dr knew right away it wasn't supposed to be there and sent him to urologist asap. Better to be safe than sorry.

    Hey there,

    I see you wrote your question about a month ago but i just saw it today and thought i could help.

    Your regular family doctor will be able to examine the lump and only if he thinks it is serious or cancerous would he send you to a specialist like a urologist.

    If the lump is beside and moveable, not part of the testicle it ISNT cancerous. As far as i now when you speak or hear of testicular cancer it is in the testicle.

    The lump could be a cyst on your epididymis, varicocele, or other benign masses.

    If you havent gotten it checked out yet and are still worried then go ask your doc. Dont be embarrassed. If you are worried, a great test is a testicular ultrasound to look for masses in the testicle.

    You can check to see if the same structure is on your other testicle too! Keep an eye on it to make sure it doesnt grow and do your monthly testicular exams! Good luck!

    Greg

    Re: Testicular cancer questions.

    I recent found a lump too, and it's a bit tender, but my problem is that I don't have a Primary care Physician. I have insurance, but no regular doctor.

    Who should I go to? Should I go to the ER to get a referal? Or what?

    Well first of all i think having a tender lump is a good sign. Probably just a cyst or something. But you should get it checked out anyway to be safe and to ease your mind if you are thinking about it. Whatever you feel more comfortable or easiest for you based on ER doctor or GP. They will only send you to a urologist if they suspect a problem. Maybe if you go to the ER you can get an ultrasound while you are there to make sure, since this a good test for a testicular mass. But either doctor im sure is fine, up to you.
