Dear Mike

I am not a doctor but I have been diagnosed with Testicular Cancer about 6 weeks ago. I felt something unusual as well in my testicles, it wasn't similar to your knob but just a slight heaviness and I ignored it for almost 8 weeks. The first doctor thought it was an infection and gave me antibiotics. Only after the Antibiotics didn't seem to work I went to see another urologist. He said it might be a tumor.

I did a lot of research on the internet and there are a lot of possible diseases in the scrotum area, not all of them have to be cancer necessarily but it is definitely advisable to see a urologist as soon as possible. If you feel pain in the groins go to the ER immediately. The faster you go the easier, faster and cheaper the treatment will be in the end. Testicular Cancer is curable 95%-99% of all cases so you don't have to worry. You definitely won't die from it and you'll be able to have sex again.

Definitely take it easy and stay calm but do see a urologist and have a sonogram taken of your scrotum and if the urologist gives you an unclear answer or just antibiotics go see another one to get a second opinion.

Good luck!

All best,

Eric

What type of heaviness? Did one of your testicles have some sudden enlargement?
