A sign of testicular cancer?
a bump above left testicle
Answers: NOT testicular, by its location. Sounds more like an inflamed epididymis or a cyst of the appendix epidid. or appendix testis.(both are benign and pretty common) A scrotal ultrasound will pinpoint it. Don't worry.
# A painless lump or swelling around one or both testicles is the most common symptom.
Other symptoms include:
# A dull ache surrounded by the groin or lower abdomen
# Pain or discomfort in the testicle or scrotum that may be constant or sporadic
# A feeling of burden or pulling sensation in the scrotum
# Sudden enlargement of the testicle due to fluid (a hydrocele)
# Tenderness or enlargement of tissue surrounded by the breast area.
Most lumps in the scrotum are not testicular cancer but if you find a lump or swelling or detect any differences in your testicles when you do a self nouns you must go see your doctor.
Testicular cancers respond very economically to treatment
Tests will be carried out by your doctor to make an accurate diagnosis.
