  • Pain in scrotum and abdomen

    Hi,

    About 2 years ago I found out that I had a benign cyst on my right testicle. Lately, I have been experiencing a dull pain in the lower-to-center right abdominal region. A few days after I started experiencing that pain, I started feeling a dull ache in my left testicle. The pain is not constant and seems to come and go throughout the course of the day. However, I feel the pain more often than not.

    I have done a self-examination and did not notice any lumps (aside from the benign cyst) or any swelling. I am a bit worried as to what this might be. Are these typical signs of testicular cancer or something serious?

    If the pain doesn't go away soon I am definitely going to go see a doctor. Please let me know what you think.


    Thanks!

    It's likely to be something less serious than testicular cancer, but if it continues, do check it out with your doctor.

      I would get this checked out with a doc in case that cyst has changed its makeup, unlikly but ....... best to be safe.

            A simple and painless ultrasound will put your mind at ease. If you were my kid brother, I'd suggest going to see your doctor just to make sure.

              Hi all,

              Thanks for the responses. The pain went away for a few weeks but now it is back again. I cannot make it to a doctor for another 2 weeks or so because I'm out of town. Should I be worried about anything serious if the pain disappeared for a few weeks but now is back again?

              Thanks!

                Mate,

                Anything health wise should be actied on ASAP. The sooner any problem is located the easier is is usually to correct.
