swollen, hard, left testicle


   About 4 years ago my left testicle swelled up and got hot, but then the pain went away,and the about 2 years ago it started swelling up again but not much.
   Now it is 4 inches long and about 4 wide, in other words it's huge, and hard, with a fibrous texture to it.
   I also noticed that it,s so heavy and big that it seems that it's pulling my penis in to where it's so small, my girlfriend laughs at me sometimes, I went to a doctor and he gave me Doxicicline thinking it's Epididymitis.
   Can anyone direct me towards a better treatment?

Dear Robert
I agree with Doug .  Testicular cancer needs to be ruled out if you indeed have a hard mass in the testicle.   You could have had an infection which has healed with a scar but there is no way to know  after the fact.  I would recommend seeing a urologist to further evaluate this mass.    
More individualized care is available at the Henry Ford Hospital and its urban campuses by calling  (1 800 653 6568). We can also arrange local accommodations through this number if this is your need. Please bring any physicians
