My son is 19, last week he said his one testicals was sensitive
in a day or two he felt fine. Now he has found a pin size lump that is sensitive to touch. I know we must see a Dr. However we are inbeteen insurance, my husband change job two weeks ago.
Our new insurance will be in effect on the 1st of Oct. Do you feel I can wait this lone. Very worried mom
It would be tough to make any recommendations without examining your son myself.
Possibilities would include a testicular cyst, varicocele, or infection - either folliculitis or epididymitis.
At the very least, I would pursue a urinalysis, to examine for the various types of infection, and/or a testicular ultrasound to make sure that there is nothing more serious in the scrotum. Tests for STDs such as gonorrhea and chlamydia should also be pursued.
If the pain is constant and worsens I would suggest seeing a physician sooner rather than later.
Followup with your personal physician is essential.
