  • Is the pain in the belly and groin area caused by testicular cancer constant?

    Sorry about my english, it's not my native language.

    Is the pain constant or does it come and go?

    My left testicle is very swollen and my right one is ranging too low, but it's been 2 days since the pain in my belly and groin area has stopped.
    I went to the urologist and he said it's just a hydrocele. Should I get an ultrasound? I'm feeling short of breath, maybe caused by anxiety.

    what is your doc doing to treat the hydrocele?
    Jan, 1975: Right I/O, followed by RPLND
    Dec, 2009: Left I/O, followed by 3xBEP

      Nothing, he said I should not be worried about a hydrocele.
      The only thing that's concerning me now is the shortness of breath and a feeling of heaviness on the left side of my chest. My left testicle has been "swollen" for about a month.

      I forgot to say but I have a soft lump on the top of my left testicle but I don't know if it's attached to it.

        Hi lordsieg,

        When the lump is not very hard, normally it will be benign issue. But ultrasound can tell you exactly what it is, and it is harmless.

        Good luck
