  • Lump in empty right area after orchiectomy

    I wanted to know aside from the pain and soreness etc; has anyone ever noticed a ball similar to the one on the testicle they removed in another area after the surgery ?? I can tell an almost exact small object but this time to the right of my penis like were my pubes begin and top of the testicle sack trying to explain the best I can as far as location sorry if choice of words or detail not enough has me very worried has been 2,1/2 weeks since my surgery and I barely noticed it by seeing small bump and feeling it. does anyone know about or heard of this?

    Or what's the chance some of the cancer was left behind or missed from first surgery

      Look up hematoma. A blood clot is pretty common to form near where your testicle was removed. I had one that was basically the size of a testicle or a little larger, and then it slowly went away over the course of a few weeks.
