  • Small ball on right testicle

    I have a smaller than a BB sized ball on my right testicle. It's attached to the surface of the testicle and can move a bit. There's no pain at all. I'm getting an ultra sound tomorrow. The doctor who looked at me didn't seemed concerned but didn't really tell me much. I've had it for sometime now. It started as a small grain size and has slowly grown more round but still relatively small.

    Like I said there's no pain or swelling. In touching it I can't really tell how close it is to the veins and things that connect to the testicle.

    I'm really scared and any advice or reassurances would me greatly appreciated. Just to state again it's on the outside of the testicle but attached. It doesn't seem to be swollen on the inside of the testicle.

    I was examining my testicle again and I was able to grab the ball and move it away from the testicle. Once I let go it goes right back to the testicle but it seems that it's not directly attached to the testicle

    Sorry to hear you've got TC concerns. You're in the right spot for info and support. No doubt you are freaking out but you are on the right path to diagnosis and kudos to you for not putting it off as early diagnosis is crucial to those crazy high cure rates! Try to keep busy today and write down your questions for your doctor. If you're a proactive person, look for quality specialists in your area and make yourself a preliminary game plan. We are all here for you!!! Let us know how tomorrow goes! xoxoxoxo

      I actually had the ultra sound yesterday. My doctor should call me today with the results. With the info I gave do you feel it's a tumor or possibly just a cyst?

        I wish I could tell you but I'm not a doctor and even a doctor will rely on medical testing for a diagnosis. If it's possible, go for a walk today and get some sun and fresh air. Find something funny to distract you. Have lunch with a friend. Just try to get through today. xoxoxo

          Thank you. I'm trying but it's eating up inside not knowing.

            Generally TC is either inside or attached to the surface of the testicle. If you can move it away from the testicle and it moves independently of the testicle, the chances of it being TC are lower.

              I think it may be between the lining of the outside of the testicle and the testicle itself because I can move the ball pretty far from the testicle.

                Got the results back from the doctor. Have a benign cyst on both left and right testicles. Non cancerous. Thank you for your replies and warm words. They really helped.
