hi i have been diagnosed with bilateral microlithiasis and i'm just wondering is there a high possibility of developing testicular cancer?

No: Microlithiasis isn't very weakly associated with testis cancer. Check your testicles for changes every month. You may want to see a urologist every year for exam to be extra safe.
