Very tender/sore testicles

Posted by shelby29 @shelby29, Nov 21 1:14pm

One year into Eligard and Zytiga. I know shrinking testicles are a common/normal side effect. However mine are very tender/sore for the past week or so. Anyone else experience this?

Interested in more discussions like this? Go to the Prostate Cancer Support Group.

I'm 13 months into the same package of medication and have a similar scenario that occurs occasionally. I try to play nice with the testicles with gentle cleaning and gentle placement, as opposed to how I've lived my life up to this point. For me it started about 1 month ago, and will share this finding with my oncologist in early January. Generally speaking, there is quite a bit of quality of life issues that comes with ADT, but if it keeps my PSA less than 0.1, I'm cool with it.


Thankyou for your reply. I thought it was just me. Also will bring up with oncologist next visit months away. I'm on the same page as you, adt sucks, but I'm adjusting well to side effects and extremely appreciatively for my continued survival….stage 3b, gleason 8….very high risk rating. Best to you!
