    Hey Kidos,
    That's great news! Breathe a sigh of relief and celebrate!
    I hope your surgery goes well.
    Painless lump 5/18/2017
    Orchidectomy June 2017 (4.5cm, rete testis involvement)
    Chemo Summer 2017 (2x7AUC carboplatin)
    No evidence of relapse since, but plenty of anxiety about it.

    I'm also an epidemiologist, and a professor at a medical school (with NO training in oncology), oh, and gay, too.

        Glad to hear it's nothing life-threatening.Surgery is never fun, but you get through it. I've had about 7 now & each one was a bit different,but yours should be fairly easy to deal with. Please let us now how it turns out. Best of luck!

          My surgery will take place in monday. I had some luck and one patient canceled his surgery so doctors called me.I am actually more scared of interaction with needle. They need some blood tests. I will sleep during surgery so yeah. I don't think there is a big risk with my operation I mean they will just remove the cyst not the actual testicle. I will tell you more after all this. Thank you for beeing interested in my case.

              hey, im 12. I have a ton of little white things all around my scrotum. they kind of look like pimples. they have been there for around three weeks but im thinking it could just be the underwear I wore for a while (it was super tight..) there were no differences between my testicles or anything, is this normal?

                to SCAREDDUDE- not a male, but believe what you are referring to is completely normal.

                  Testicular tumors are usually solid masses on the testicle itself and not on the surface of the scrotum. I am not sure what you are referring to, whether it is pimples, infected hairs, etc. but I would not really be concerned from a cancer perspective. But if the situation gets worse or does not improve/resolve quickly, then I wouldn't hesitate to have a doctor take a look so that you know what is going on.
