  • UPDATE: I got my ultrasound results.

    And it was a testicular cyst!!

    Thank you all so much for giving me the courage to go in for the test. This has been a huge weight lifted off of my shoulders. I'm sorry for anyone who is currently going through cancer, but just know that you are apart of an amazing community of helpful, thoughtful, and comforting people.

    Seriously, thank you.

    Without you all, I'd still be sitting here panicking and googling my symptoms all day long.

    Also, to anyone who has symptoms but is afraid of getting checked out because of what the results might be. Please go get checked. Don't be like me and spend every waking moment on google checking your symptoms and comparing your symptoms to others.

    I had a lump right on the front of my testicle (most common spot for a testicular tumor), along with occasional aches in my scrotum, which is also another symptom of testicular cancer, and I had already said my goodbyes and written my will. Not really, but you get the point I am trying to make haha

    Sometimes, a lump is just a lump. Get it checked out and quit killing yourself with anxiety.

    And if it does turn out to be something serious, then by getting it checked out as soon as you notice symptoms, you have a better chance of it being caught early.

    Glad to hear that

    I wish I could get over my anxiety too

    Are you going to be treating the cyst?

      Great to hear you did not have TC! Please continue to check once a month, because every guy should do that.

      Stay in touch & let us know how you get on,

        They said they want to keep an eye on the cyst just in case it gets any bigger because then I may be a candidate for having the cyst removed. It actually seems like it is getting smaller though. I checked it today for the first time since my ultrasound and it seems like it has gotten a lot smaller.

        Also, when it comes to your anxiety, I know exactly what you're going through. Just try to focus on other things and go get checked out by a doctor. Remember that TC is rare and most of the time you will find out you're fine.

          Thanks, Dave! You were a great help in helping me deal with my anxiety. Thanks for that. I will keep checking my testicles on the first of every month. The cyst actually looks like it has shrunken a considerable amount since my ultrasound last week.

          I am still curious as to what is causing these occasional pains though. I forgot to mention but I started to get the random pains around the same time I started lifting weights for the first time which was around January of this year. Maybe it has something to do with that?
