  • 15 and probably overreacting

    I was examining my testicles in the shower yesterday and felt a hardish lump on the top of my left testicle. it seems to be attached to something that is in turn attached to the testicle but I had no idea what to think. I'm really scared right now but I wanna know some more info before I tell my parents (only a little nervous about it) and going to the doctor.

    Before I answer your post, please be aware that no one here is a doctor and if you have any doubts whatsoever, you should seek counsel from a trained medical professional.

    The above aside, it sounds very likely that you are dealing with the epididymis. TC is typically a hard lump that presents on the testicle or may not be a lump at all and inside the testicle.

    Although I do not believe we are dealing with TC here, telling your parents your worry is always a good idea and a quick and painless ultrasound will put it to rest.

    Let us know.

        Teendavid, as Aegean said it could be the epididymis or a myriad of other things, but it would be a good idea to talk to your parents and go see the doctor just incase, its one of those better safe then sorry situations. Plus if it did end up being something early detection is important.
