NODULE ON TESTICLE
Hi, I'm a 15 year boy and I recently noticed that I have a nodule on my left testicle. A few days ago I felt fine (no pain, no nodule), however the next day, all of a sudden, I felt a nodule on my left testicle, which was accompanied by pain/tenderness. The nodule literally formed overnight. Today (2 days later), the pain has subsided, but the nodule is still there. Not only because I am an optimist, but because of the suddenness of it all I think I can rule out cancer. Also, my family has no history of testicular cancer, or really any type of cancer for that matter. I would really appreciate if someone could tell me what the problem is.

Also, can you please list for me some symptoms of testicular cancer other than the main ones (painless lump, discomfort, dull feeling, etc...)

THANK YOU :)

Hello,
From the symptoms and your age, it does not look like a testicular cancer. This nodule can be an infected hair follicle or boil( present on skin) or an epididymal cyst(present inside testicles). Apply warm compresses on the nodule and keep the area clean. Also topical antibiotics such as mupirocin or neomycin containing ointment are also useful. In case the symptoms persist then oral antibiotics may be needed. Please consult your doctor in that case.
Hope it helps. Take care and regards.
