Forum Name: Testicular Cancer

Question: Symptom Confusion


 noremac - Tue Dec 05, 2006 8:37 pm

Hello,

I am a 17 year old male and im a bit worried. i've done a testicular self-exam on myself for at least an hour to be sure and i havent found a thing. no lumps, no softness, no irregular size. the only thing i worry about is that as i was reading up on testicular cancer, a few sources mentioned a symptom of "swollen" (for lack of a better word) nipples. my nipples, when im not cold, "puff out" off my chest equally about 1/2". also, even though im not sure if this has anythign to do with it, i get winded quite easily while running and such, and i don't recover to my normal heart for about 1 minute. should i be concerned about cancer or does it sound like something else?

thank you

User avatar Hello,

Non of what you have mentioned is suggestive of any pathological condition. What you described is physiological and no need to worry about.
