What are the symptoms of testicle cancer?

What are the symptoms of testicle cancer?

Painless mass.: Testicular cancer usually presents as a painless mass in the scrotum. Because there is often no pain, many unfortunately delay evaluation. As the mass enlarges, there may be discomfort or a sensation of fullness in the scrotum, seen in 30-40%. 10% experience acute pain. If the cancer spreads, symptoms of more advanced disease such as neck mass, back pain, bone pain, or cough may result. ...Read more

What should you do if you have a cyst or lump on the testicles?

What should you do if you have a cyst or lump on the testicles?

Confirm first...: Most of laypersons tend to refer epididymal cysts as testicular cyst or bump. Cyst in epididymis is much more common than the rare one in the testes. So, verify if such cyst/bump is indeed in a testis or epididymis. If in epididymis, do nothing if asymptomatic; if in testis, usually require surgical exploration to make sure of not being testicular cancer. For individual decision/concern, ask Doc. ...Read more

What are the odds of a teenager (18 years old) developing a cyst in his testicle?

What are the odds of a teenager (18 years old) developing a cyst in his testicle?

Unknown, but common: Cystic structures can develop in or around the testicle. Cystic enlargements of the epididymis (spermatocele), the space around the testicle (hydrocele), or arising from the cells on or inside the testicle can occur and are easily visible on ultrasound. The prevalence is unknown, but ultrasound screening studies show cysts in about 10% of scans. Fortunately, these are benign. ...Read more

Do health consequences result from having a cyst on a testicle, besides cancer? If so, what are they?

Most likely benign..: Despite medical advance, most of medical care is still based on indirect evidence resulting from continual collection & analysis of available experience. Within this in mind, a reasonable approach to ascertain what a suspected lesion may be but with no 100% guaranty. Thus far, a testicular cyst could be followed conservatively with periodic palpation, US, & even blood tests for 1-3 yrs; then.... ...Read more

Varicocele: Is highly unlikely that varicoceles cause severe pain, there is usually something else going on. The cyst on the right testicle is probably a spermatocele and mostly treated conservatively with nsaid's, as a last resort, surgery. I would see a urologist and see what he recommends. ...Read more

It is not serious: Epididymal Cyst also called Spermatocele is a benign condition. It is a painless fluid filled cyst in the long tightly coiled tube that lies behind each testis (Epididymis)
It is often asymptomatic&can be felt as a lump above the testis on one side of scrotum.
It is only treated if it cause pain&will often get smaller as body absorps the fluid

I have a bean sized lump on the top of my testicle. It's attached but can tell it's a seperate lump. I'm 16 and idk if it's a big cyst or somethin els?

Scrotal lump: What your describing is likely a cystic structure within the epididymis- the structure behind the traits. It is called a spermatocelectomy or epididymal cyst. It is benign and nothing of concern. You should be evaluated by your medical doctor or a urologist for verification. ...Read more

Got u/s done and nurse said no bloodflow in lump on top of right testicle on epididymis most likely cyst or something else? Is no bloodflow good?

In this case yes.: US is used to help determine if a mass is a cancer or something less concerning. Cancer begins initially when cells stop communicating with their neighbors and start to grow faster then the rest. Before developing into a cancer the growing mass must be able to recruit blood vessels otherwise it cannot progress. Regular, smooth shape, freely mobile are all good signs if present. ...Read more

Lump testicle: Hello ~ please NEVER use abbreviations. I have no idea what TC means. If its a solid tumor, it would be in the testicle and has a very HIGH chance of being cancer (a seminoma, teratoma etc. If its in the CORD, and the epididymis is the CORD there is about ZERO chance of being cancer and MOST likely is an epididymal cyst. You leave it. But make SURE of the location. CORD or TESTIS. Big difference. ...Read more

I have a lump on the top of my testicle that I can move around but it still feels sorta connected to the testicle. Is this a cyst or cancer?

Spermatocele?: You are likely describing something called a spermatocele. This is a cyst at the head of the epididymis containing sperm. Unless they are causing symptoms they are left alone. They do not interfere with fertility. Cancer will be a hard area felt on the testicle. Best to see a physician to be sure it's a spermatocele. ...Read more

I have a testicular cyst and varicoule vein in testicles also does either one effect having children:?

Varicocoele: Varicocoele in the scrotum near the testicle is a abnormal collection of veins around the testicle. It can cause increased temperature within the testicle that can hinder your sperm count / hinder sperm production. This could obviously affect your ability to have children, as it can lead to more difficulty having the adequate sperm count. Look into having it fixed by a urologist. ...Read more

Will a bilateral hydrocele, epididimal cyst, and varicocele on testicles go away on its on? Its really painful and aggravating

Scrotal pathology: None of these conditions will go away on their own. Most varicoceles and hydroceles are not usually painful. An epididymal cyst can be painful due to inflammation of the epididymis. You need to have a consultation to determine which of these is causing your problem and the treat it accordingly. ...Read more

Had a ultra sound results said I have bilateral epididymal cyst on my right testicle. It's uncomfortable and around the size of a marble? . What does this really mean and does that require surgery? Help!

Contradiction.: Bilateral means both sides. You cannot have a bilateral cyst only on the right testicle. The cyst on the right may be larger & causing symptoms (discomfort), but bilateral means there is another (possibly smaller) cyst on the left. If you have symptoms, talk to a Urologist about drainage & decompression of the cyst (s). Hopefully you can avoid the Operating Room. ...Read more

Cysts on testicle. Had sonogram nit cancerous but is there anything I can do to help them go away?

Cysts in Scrotum: It is highly unlikely that you have cysts on the testicles, but have cysts in the tubing going from the testicles into the prostate gland. These cysts, often called varicoceles or hydroceles are scar tissue that you developed earlier in your life. As you age this scar tissue can get irritated and swell for a time. They usually resolve without any intervention. ...Read more
