  • I'm I just paranoid?

    Hey guys just like to say its great what you are doing well were do I start I don't know why but I began getting paranoid about Tc like 3 months ago and I can't seem to stop checking over my testicles I found a little lump on the top of my lefty like 2 months ago and I had it checked out the doctor said it was nothing to worry about but he will send me for a ultrasound for piece of mind so long story short I went for the ultrasound and all was ok but ever since then I can't stop worrying and checking and since then I have had like a check up every 2 weeks and each time I'm told I'm fine but like 2days after I convince my self something is wrong like at this present time I'm thinking the bottom part of my right testicle feels like it has like a bump over it basically I'm wondering is it possible to have a major problem 2weeks after the doctor saying everything is fine I'm just fed up of going to the doctors like every 2 weeks there starting to think I'm crazy lol anyway it would be nice to see what you guys think thanks.
