Hi i've been feeling pain in my right testicle, in my pelvis, and in my anus does this mean I have cancer?

More like infection.: Cancer in the testicle is usually painless, like a painless mass in the testicle. As for anal cancer, there may be pain in the anal area with a bowel movement, but there is also a mass most of the time, along with bleeding. Your pain seems like it involves your inguinal area, testes, and radiates to your anus, which is characteristic of an infection, like epididymitis. See your dr. To br sure. ...Read more

See a doctor ASAP: This sounds like a serious infection, maybe pelvic inflammatory disease (PID), which is usually due to chlamydia or gonorrhea. PID can lead to an abscess that can drain into the uterus or vagina. Regardless of cause, you need to be professionally evaluated immediately, with the likelihood of needing antibiotics and maybe even hospitalization and/or surgery. Good luck! ...Read more
