Testicular cancer

I have a growth near the bottom of my testicule that formed in the last week. The testicle is tender and also get a small pain in the groan area when presume is applied. Would that be early stage of testicular cancer?

Dear Anonymous, any growth on one’s testicle should be investigated immediately to exclude early testicular cancer. An early diagnosis means early treatment with a very high rate of success. Please make an appointment with your doctor immediately.

The symptoms of testicular cancer include:

§  Uncomfortable feeling in a testicle

§  Presence of a painless lump on a testicle – the lump can sometimes be as small as a grain of rice and feel like hard rubber

§  An enlarged or swollen testicle

§  Significant shrinking of a testicle

§  A change in the consistency of a testicle

§  A heavy or aching feeling in the back, lower abdomen, groin, or scrotum

§  Any painless lump on a testicle
