Im eight months removed from testicular injury and still have a large hematoma that has not decreased in size since the accident. Any suggestions?
Here are some...: Can you specify what was removed after testicular injury? The swelling from tissue injury either by trauma or surgery should be resolved in 4 to 6 months. If not, eight months after injury is the time to be reassessed with physical examination and ultrasound study. Meanwhile, it would be useful to bring the detail of the sequence of events since injury to the doctor for the analysis. ...Read more
Hi, I have a testicular hematoma, from a injury a month ago. It has not gone down in size. I went to ER and they said it was no big deal and gave me motrin. What should I do if its same size a month from now? Thanks, Scott

It may remain as the trauma may have caused irritation of the linings I of the scrotum creating a Hydrocele. See your doc again in3-4 months if it has not reduced in size or gets larger. Ultrasound would be helpful if not diagnostic at that point. Neither hematoma nor hydrocele are life threatening . ...Read more

Dumb luck: Apart from cryptorchidism, which greatly increases the risk, these seem to strike at random. There are two studies you may see that to me reek of bad science. In one, the men who had testicular cancer and wonder why were more willing to confess to having tried cannabis. In the other, men who'd lost a testis exaggerated their past athletic achievements. No, fitness doesn't cause cancer. ...Read more
