ok so i have had pain off and on in mostly my right testicle. i also noticed a lump there while in the shower(everything relaxed). GP gave me an ultrasound and said there is deffinately something there hes just not sure what...he had an "expert" look at results and they said it was normal.. i dont think so. he perscribed antibiotics for 10 days. no help, it just made me feel sick. so i go to urologist. he checked me out and said he didnt feel anything abnormal, but it was kinda tensed up so it would be hard for him to feel any type of abnormal lump. he said the pain could be from back issues or scar tissue and to try ibuprofen800 and osteopathic manipulation and get back to him in a month! i dont understand whats going on. that wouldnt explain the lump or whatever it is that i feel in the shower. This abnormal lump is on the bottom of right testicle. and i do have pain in back alot but i am worried and tired of getting the run around from everyone...hope u can help......
Honestly speaking, if the urologist on manual palpation has not been able to pick it up, I doubt if such a lump exists. However, if you feel it and it troubles you, I’ll suggest you getting an ultrasound of the scrotum repeated to see if there’s something. If not, I think a course of some anti-inflammatory like ibuprofen may help to take care of the pain and inflammation (if present). I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
