I had one testicular removed in 2007 due to testicular cancer, now is it safe and healthy for me to pour water in penis hole during bath ?

It could potentially cause an infection. I wouldn't recommend pouring water into the opening on purpose. ...Read more

I'm a 34 year old male. Just lost my second testicle to testicular cancer. Now have no testicles. Will I be able to lead a normal life?

Of course you will mourn the physical loss you have experienced but you can be perfectly happy as you adjust. A clinical psychologist can help smooth out the adjustment process a bit. Sorry for what you have been through. Peace and good health. ...Read more

Had testicular cancer and given chemotherapy and operated my one testicular removed. Can i lead a normal sex life ?. Because i can't produce sperm now

Testes are organs: Of procreation, and you can live without either. Two main functions of testis: 1. Produce sperm to father children; 2. Produce testosterone enhancing male secondary body characteristics and sex drive. Your ability to survive long term is not effected by losing one testis. One testis may still produce sperm, but sperm has everything to do with fertility, noting to do with sexual ability: erection, . ...Read more

How quickly does testicular cancer spreads?

How quickly does testicular cancer spreads?

Relatively quickly.: Unfortunately, testicular cancer generally tends to grow rapidly relative to other cancers. It then tends to spread, in a fairly predictable pattern, to the lymph nodes behind the abdominal cavity, then potentially to other organs. This makes prompt diagnosis and treatment very important. If you feel a mass in the testicle, don't delay evaluation and see your physician as soon as possible. ...Read more
