Cancer is a group of diseases that is characterized by uncontrolled cell growth leading to invasion of surrounding tissues that spread to other parts of the body. Cancer can begin anywhere in the body and is usually related to one or more genetic mutations that allow normal cells to become malignant by interfering with internal cellular control mechanisms, such as programmed cell death or by preventing ...Read more
Had testicular cancer in left testicular. & testicular removed. Yesterday diagnosed hydrocele in right testicular. Will it become a testicular cancer?
Different entities: I'm glad the original testicular cancer is history. If you've had a good imaging study and there's no testicular cancer on the right, I would not worry about the hydrocele -- these are extremely common. You're correct to believe that a second primary in the opposite testis is somewhat more common than random chance. Ask your physician about banking sperms. Good luck. ...Read more
Had left testicular removal in 2007 due to testicular tumar. Yestrday diagnosed hydrocele in right testicular. Will it develop into testicular cancer?
Mild right varicocoele, minimal left hydrocoele, tiny cyst in the right epididymis found in u/s. Hypochondriac of testicular cancer. What should I do?
Lets treat Hypochond: You have to trust your test results and your treating doctor. If you do not, then we need to treat your hypochondriasis. Testicular cancer is not a subtle condition. It will produce a growth in the testicle which you can feel with your hands (bigger than the other testicle) and ultrasound will show it up easily. So just relax, think of better things to do than worry (you should wait to worry!). ...Read more
Had left testicular removal in 2007 due to testicular cancer and now diagnosed hydrocele in right testicular. What is the safe effective treatment?
See below: A scrotal ultrasound will confirm a diagnosis of hydrocele. While this can be corrected with a relatively simple outpatient operation, if it is not really hurting or bothering you in any way, I would advise against it. All surgery, no matter how "minor", can have complications, and in your case, this is the only testicle you have left, and is the only thing making testosterone and sperm! ...Read more
Left testicle has gone completely horizontal post hydrocele surgery, will this put me at an increased risk of testicular cancer?
Here are some...: Assuming a new positioning of a testicle after an uneventful hydrocelectomy should not pose an increased rick for testicular cancer. In fact, a degree of changing testicular position even in horizontal one is commonly expected; so, do not worry about it. More? Ask your surgeon. ...Read more
A lump: Usually rough-surfaced, seldom very painful, sometimes just an enlarges testis if the cancer is inside. Check yourself when you feel like it, and at least once a month with some serious-minded attention to what's there. If you haven't yet discovered your epididymis, you will and it's not cancer. Any new mass should get seen by your physician. ...Read more

Hard lump: The testicle should feel uniformly firm, like the tip of your nose. Anything in the testicle that feels harder than the surrounding tissue needs to be evaluated. Occasionally a tumor can grow rapidly and men notice the affected testicle is much larger than its partner. Monthly self exam is critical to early detection. ...Read more
Yes: If a testicular cancer is very small, doesn't look different from the remainder of the testicle, or is "burned out" it may not be seen. "burned out" means the tumor has shrunken in the testicle (often leaving nothing but a scar or calcification) and the tumor is only found by patient metastases, often enlarged lymph nodes. Lastly, an inexperienced sonographer can just not see it. ...Read more
Here are some. ..: This is a good Q. Known to us, each life event always represents itself as a process of lifelong making from compiling multiple factors in the past.

But, if any, the amount of such inevitable leaking roaming energy is not clinically significant. Best wish ...Read more
