my hubby had painless lump on his testicle for about 6mths. It then began to get painful. When he visited the specialist they had him straight into hosp and removed it,he was 26. They removed his testicle and replaced it with a silicone implant. When it was tested the lump was found to be a teratoma.That was 16 years ago. He has no problems with sex at all and has had no recurrance.Because i worked for the health service at the time i got good advice to get him to the doctors asap.I am telling you the same,get it checked out as a lot of lumps on the testicle can be harmless cysts.If it does turn out to be cancer it is one of the most curable if caught at a early stage. Good luck.
The first post (by dalip) was really great advice. You must see to this right away to make sure its not something serious. If possible make an appointment with a urologist... don't worry just take care of it right away.
Im also experiencing this problem and it freaks me out. I dont know what to do and how am i going to tell my parents about this. Actually, ive discovered this since i was 12. Now im 17 and heard about this cancer thing, i freaked out because im thinking it might affect my fertility. Im really worried about this, so how do they treat this kind of problem? if they remove my nut, will it affect my fertility please do reply to this. please.. im really worried..
