Do I Have Prostate Cancer?

Postby NewIyn » Tue Sep 05, 2017 3:07 pm

First of all, I'm 14, so I'm not even sure I can get prostate cancer, so this question might be utterly ridiculous. Anyway, this has been worrying me so....

I think I might have prostate cancer. First of all, one of my testicles is marginally larger than the other. It's not a huge difference in size, but one is certainly bigger than the other.

Secondly, I think I may be showing symptoms of prostate cancer. I eat loads of crap food, like McDonald's and KFC, but I'm really skinny because I have a high metabolic rate or something. Also, my lower back hurts all the time, which I have read is a symptom on Google. On top of this, I always wake up in the middle of the night and need to urinate, although this only started when the current heatwave hit Southern England, so it may just be a coincidence.

On top of this, I have a genital wart, which I got from warts I had on my fingers. I have read this increases the chance of prostate cancer.

As I said, I'm 14 and really don't want to tell my parents about this and potentially get them all worried for nothing.

No, you do not have prostate cancer.
You are 14, start worrying about grades and girls, not cancer.

Stay off Google and searching health problems or you'll drive yourself nuts.

At 14, you don't have prostate cancer.
You also don't likely have genital warts because you had a wart on your hand.
GW is a virus that is sexually transmitted.
Having different sized testicles is also normal.

Go read a good, long book and stay off the internet for a while.

At your age the risk of prostate cancer is zero.

It is normal for one testicle to be slightly larger than the other.
Few (if any) people are perfectly symmetrical.

If your lower back is sore it could be anything from a sporting injury, muscle strain from bad posture or a chill from wearing your pants too low.

Waking one during the night to urinate is normal.
Waking hourly to urinate could be prostate cancer.

A wart on your genitals, transferred from your hand is just a wart on your genitals.

Genital warts are a different strain of HPV.

Tell your parents, they won't worry because they will not think you have any form of cancer based on the symptoms you have listed.
