Question: Lump on the side of my right testicle.

 denic2k6 - Wed Feb 01, 2006 4:03 pm

Hello, Thanks for reading my thread.

I am 15 years old. I was recently doing a check on my self, i was looking for lumps in the testicles.

I was checking and i found a small, painless lump on my left testicle. I also get a dull ache just above my groin,

Im so scared and i don't have the courage to go and see the doctor.

Any help or advice would be good!

The only thing you can do is go and see the doctor. nI fact go to the ER right away and they will do an ultrasound scan. If you have a lump then the only way you will know what it is, and the only way you will feel any better is if you get it checked out by the proffesionals. I know its embarassing to show your bits in fornt of people but at the end of the day these peole have seen thousands of penis's so they don't make a bg deal out of it. To them seeing a penis is no different to you and me waking up in the morning and seeing the sun. Basically its second nature to them. Really mate, just bite the bullet, swallow your pride and see the doc. At the end of the day you can spend as much time as you want on the internet trying to find answers to your problems but none of it means anything until you've seen a proffseional in the flesh. Go get it checked out mate and good luck! :-) I'm going to see a urologist myself tomorrow and i'm nervous too so. It comes with the territory.
