If A Dude Has Cancer In His Testicle Will He End Up With High Pitched Voice
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.See 3 more doctor answers
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
No...but if the dude: Were to lose both testicles for any reason he might maintain a "boy soprano" voice, eunuchs were exactly this. A man with one testicle with cancer and it is removed, stil has another, and if his voice has or had not changed, the other testis makes suffiicent testosterone to provide male characteristics, and if the testosterone level is low, it can be replaced. Still a real dude.See 1 more doctor answer
No not related: One testis will not cause high pitched voice, there is no relationship with voice.

Castrati: The male voice deepens at puberty because the male hormone (testosterone) changes the shape and tension on the vocal folds, which generate the voice. Without it, the voice remains high. There are treatments which can be prescribed ranging from hormone therapy to surgery to deepen the voice. Check with a primary care provider and/or a laryngologist for options.See 1 more doctor answer
If im 20 years old, and I have a high pitched voice, and a skinny frame, is there any possibility that I will develop a thicker frame and deeper voice?
Depends: Further changes are dependent on your stage of development and genetics. If you haven't completed your pubertal development yet, there may still be refinement to your characteristics. Also, as one ages, there are subtle but continued changes in these traits.
Perhaps: You need to have a consultation with an experienced ENT surgeon. Ask your doctor to point you in the right direction. Good luck.

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....
Varies: Some men who start checking discover their epididymis or appendix of the testis and mistake it for a possible cancer -- it's good they're checking. The percentage of testicular solid masses not related to trauma that are malignant is quite high, and for each individual mass, it's either 0% or 100%. Best have any new mass examined.
No: Some couples like this. This actually causes the prostate and seminal vesicles to fill tremendously, giving some men more enjoyment when ejaculation finally takes place. The testes are unaffected. No one's shown any clearly increased risk in prostate cancer from abstinence, though the jury's still out on it being a risk for benign enlargement later. Seminal vesicle cancer almost never happens.
