  • Strange feeling in other testicle?

    More than 3 months passed after orchiectomy,,two weeks ago I finished last cycle of chemo.I have strange feeling in other testicle,not really pain,just discomfort.
    Could this be "normal" ?
    I have control check in 45 days,I don't see any change in testicle or pain in lower back like first time.
    Or is it all in my mind and I'm just overreacting?
    Right I/O, teratoma Left I/O,seminoma

    Probably normal. We tend to notice a lot of little things we wouldn't have once we get a TC Dx. Mention it at your next visit if it still feels odd.

      I had similar experience. I am overly sensitive anytime I have any weird pains.

      Don't overcheck yourself. Check once a month. Playing with it or checking it hourly can cause irritation/pain. If it's persistent let your clinician know.

      Contralateral testis cancer at the same or nearly same time is not common.
