  • Post-orchiectomy bump question


    I had an orchiectomy on 2/19. Last night I noticed a small bead sized bump on the same side I had my orchiectomy. It's hard for me to describe the exact area. It feels like it's attached to my penis or muscles of my penis, inside my body (left side of pelvic floor region?). I can feel it with my hand through my empty scrotum. The only reason I noticed is because sometimes it's painful like a live wire.

    What could this be? I feel like it's an weird spot for metastasis and I finished BEP < 1 month ago. Could it be a lymph node or caused by my orchiectomy?

    I have a urologist appointment next Wednesday.

    Don't know anything about your case, but I also had two little bumps a few weeks after 1xBEP, which were harmless thrombosis.

      My husband still has a small lump, it is from scarring for him. He's had it for 3 years now
