    Ive had a lump on my right testicle for almost 3 years now. A couple of months after this I found a lump at the top of my neck, just below the end of the left side of my jaw. I never told anyone and now I seriously regret it and am really scared. I'm 16 now and I'm beginning to realise the consequences.

    I've got so much to live for. I now have a job and a wonderful girlfriend and a loving family and I don't want to lose any of it...

    Hey Mate

    This could be a range of things, you should make a visit to your doctor and have a chat to them, You might be more comfortable with a guy. Have a chat to your olds to. There is a good self exam vid here.

    Cheers

      With that firmly in mind, get yourself to the doctor right away and find out whether these symptoms are reasons for concern. As the lyric from Rent says, "Forget regret, or life is yours to miss." Don't leap to conclusions, but you owe it to yourself to turn around and move forward from here. Get it checked out, and let us know what you hear.

        Scott covered it all, so I just wanted to reinforce: GO SEE A DOC ASAP!!!

        Good luck and let us know.
        Best,
