Exam: Yes, it's the only way. There are serious conditions that have to be evaluated by physical exam to detect and diagnose. It can be difficult feeling vulnerable and exposed. Take a minute to share your concerns with the doctor to allow him or her to help you feel more comfortable. It could save your life. ...Read more

Could you tell me what happens in an appointment for testicular lumps with a doctor ?

Physical exam: Physical examination mainly. Dr. Will need to carefully palpate the testes. If there is uncertainty about findings, an ultrasound of the testes will need to be done. Keep the appointment. Nothing about this is painful. ...Read more

Testicular pain: Testicular torsion is usually a surgical emergency. You should go to a nearby emergency room ASAP, where you can undergo an ultrasound test, if the ER doctor agrees that this may be your problem. Go to a larger hospital if possible, where surgical specialists are more likely to be on call, if needed. Your feelings of anxiety are understandable, but please don't let that delay the evaluation. ...Read more

Rotation, surgery.: Non-surgical correction can sometimes be done by manually rotating the testicle in the opposite direction (outward, towards the thigh). If this is initially unsuccessful, a forced manual rotation in the other direction may correct it. Manual detorsion is successful in 26.5% to 80% of patients. This is a surgical emergency needing prompt manual or surgical rx. But with good chance of success. ...Read more

Diagnosed with left testicular hydrocele.
I consulted 2 doctors, 1 said infection & prescribed medicines, 2nd said no infection. Should I take med?

Depends. : A hydrocele is a benign condition and it seldom causes any symptoms other than a large bulge in your pants and some heaviness. If it grows bigger and it is difficult to cope with it, surgery may be indicated. I don't like aspirations it seldom helps. Hydroceles very rare get infected if they do antibiotics are indicated. If the hydrocele was caused by orchitis then you may need antibiotics. ...Read more

Anatomy: Testicular cancer would show as a mass in the testicle on ultrasound. The epididymis is near, but outside of the testicle. In typical epididymitis, it becomes inflamed and looks enlarged with increased blood flow. It typically causes acute pain in the scrotum. ...Read more
