Possible Testicular Cancer

Posted by ger1986 @ger1986, Feb 25 9:51am

I am curious to find out symptoms of others with or have had testicular cancer. There is a good possibility I may have it, they have already said it looks like a 9mm tumor on one testicle, so I see the urologist March 5th for further consolation.
FOLLOW UP ULTRASOUND SCROTUM 76870
Date: 02/11/2020
IMPRESSION:
Small indeterminate mass in the left scrotal dermis. Correlate clinically to determine if a three month follow up soft tissue ultrasound would be helpful to ensure stability.
CLINICAL INFORMATION:
Left inferior testicle mass.
COMPARISON:
No comparison.
PROCEDURE:
Real-time ultrasonography of the scrotum was performed including color Doppler.
FINDINGS:
Patient was re-examined for a nodule at the inferior aspect of the left scrotum. Within the scrotal dermis is an 8 x 9 x 5 mm isoechoic minimally vascular mass like lesion with somewhat irregular margins of uncertain etiology, not typical of an abscess or hematoma. A soft tissue tumor could be present. This is not related to the left testicle or epididymis.

We will see how this turns out and if it has caused my abdominal issues I have had over the past 6 years that there has been no diagnosis on? Not sure how slow testicle cancer can grow, but if it moved into my lymph nodes around my right kidney could explain a lot. Also explain the right breast pain and enlargement I have had for at least three years and have had two mammograms on to no avail. They chalked it up to Gynecomastia in my one breast, but now the picture could be different?

Any input would be greatly appreciated.

Good morning @ger1986 Im sure you’re very anxious about a possible diagnosis of cancer. You’ve posted the ultrasound report, but what has the doctor said? You’ll be going to see the urologist early March, which is good. In the meantime, start a journal: what prompted you to go to the doctor, when did symptoms start. Add questions like: what is treatment, could cancer (if I have it) spread, are my kidneys involved, etc. Be sure to let me know what the doctors say.

Among all the other issues I have been having over the past few years I forgot about doing self examinations on myself. Well I finally did and found the lump. I called my primary and told him. He set up the Ultrasound and after they messed up the first one and missed the lump somehow?, I talked to the office manager and they did another one free of charge. I had them send the report and Ultrasound to my primary and my Urologist. Normally it takes about two months to get in to see my urologist, but they got me in about two weeks after getting the report and scan. He has been rated in the top 10% nationwide in his field four years running. I certainly trust his opinion and judgement. Sad to say, but Truly the only good Doctor I have ever seen. I simply messed up and did not do my self exams as I was told back in 2016 which is the last time I saw him for enlarged prostrate issues.
