  • Worried

    I was diagnosed with TC in 2015 and underwent surgery to remove left testicle.

    Fast forward to last month 2/08/17 I had my CT scan as a yearly follow up, scans did not show anything.

    Last 2 weeks I have been experiencing pain in my groin area. After self examination I noticed a bump on my right testicle and I'm fearing the worst.

    Is it common to spread to my remaining testicle? I'm 26 and really worried.

    I have an appointment next week so I'm hoping the best.

    If it's a new lump on the other testicle it could mean a new testis cancer (nor spread from your first, but a new original cancer). It could be nothing as well. But given your history of testis cancer, I would quickly get an ultrasound of the testicle.

      RJKD is right, it NEVER spreads to the other testicle, but very rarely, a second primary TC develops in #2. Some guys, a year or so later, or like me, 35 years later. Gety it checked out,odd are good it's nothing serious, but you've got to find out for sure

        Thanks for the replies, I got it checked out and it's a cyst. So I'm pretty happy right now.
