  • Small hardish gland / cyst / ball below the Orchiectomy scar, 1.5 yrs post surgery

    Hi All

    I have my next check up in april, and i was sort of calm until yesterday when (while watching a great movie) I noticed a small roundshaped, hardish something just below my OI scar, very close to the surface, like attached to the skin and the scar. its a few mms..

    I finished 4*BEP 16 months ago and i am conscious this is not a usual relapse location - its not even a place where lymph nodes are... but the hardness of this made me associate it with TC immediately.

    Did any of you have this or do you have any idea about what it could be?

    Do you think its urgent? I have my next check up in one month...

    I am wondering if i should get an ultrasound before that.

    thanks All

    Not a doctor, but sounds like scar tissue. You can contact your doctor if it is causing anxiety. Good luck.

      hi Trekga

      yes, i will check it with my urologist tomorrow. Maybe i am overreacting and i agree it must be something like scar tissue. Even the lowest level of uncertainty reminds you of the worst periods...

      thank you, Trekga!

        hi Trekga, all

        my urologist checked and she thinks it must be a suture granuloma (the medical stitches were not absorbed and it caused an inflammation). I had a similar lump in the scrotal region prevously that was removed and it is likely its the same stuff. Even though its not 100% so i might need a small surgery to confirm. Dont like this now.
