Question: Lump On Testicle

 Worried/Concerned - Thu Sep 29, 2005 10:34 pm

I have recently found a small lump at the end of my left testicle. I have also been experiencing a bit of an ache about my belt-line on the same side. It seems that the testicle is a bit larger than the right one as well. I do realize that this is something that I need to have checked but here is where my questions lies. I have recently changed jobs and I am waiting (3 weeks) before my medical insurance takes effect. How big of a chance am I taking by waiting the 3 weeks until my insurance takes effect should this prove to be cancer? I am scared should it prove to be cancer my insurance company will consider it a pre-existing condition and deny payment if I do not wait.
