Question: Inner testical lump

 KS - Wed Dec 22, 2004 2:41 am

Inner testical lump: I found a small lump, "the size of a pencil eraser", on the end of my right testical. I feel no pain and I'm very concerned? please advice - I'm scheduled for an out of state marathon race next month and I'm currently training and don't want to stop. However, I've never experienced this issue before?

User avatar Hi!

As much as I want you to win that marathon, a visit to your doctor, preferably a urologist, may help eliminate causes that can be treated if detected early. Your doctor may use non-invasive workups like ultrasound and blood tests to better define the lump.

Hope this helps.

Thx for the information I'll schedule an appointment as soon as possible to move forward with the proper testing. I need to find out as soon as possible what measures are required to correct or resolve the issue. I'll take a look at the link you provided as well. Thx again.

I have a small bump on my right testical I have it for 16 years and I am 16, should I be worried it hasnt grown, it doesnt hurt, and its very small. Is it a birth mark, Ive had scans and stuff and no cancer has shown up is this just a birth mark. I need help because my mom and dad have never had cancer, but cancer runs in the family
