About 4 weeks ago I took a heavy knock to the left testicle and it still gives out a slight ache that comes and goes what could it be or any treatment?
? Testicle rupture: Symptoms should have settled down by now. However, you may have a small epididymal cyst (spermatocele). This would feel like a small tender lump at top of testis.

If your lump is not cancer then you can rest easy with that knowledge. ...Read more
I've got a question. If they find cancer cells in a male testicle, does that mean they have cancer and do they give treatment for cancer cells?
Testis cancer causes: A lump in a testicle. We check markers (alpha feto protein, hcg). We remove the testis through the inguinal canal/incision. We do not violate the scrotum. We assess for nodes by ct scans of the para-aortic and kidney hila. We do not sample "cells" but look at the tumor in place after it is removed. Different cell types get different treatment. These are cancers. ...Read more
