GO SEE YOUR GP, usually a cancerous lump is attached to the testicle, but as horrible as it is see a GP, quickly. When it comes to cancer, weather it is cancer or not. Get it checked. No websites. See a doctor. Make an appointment now.

You could have one of a few types of a testicular infection, spermatocele, hydrocele, Variocele etc. These can usually be fixed with antibiotics, or in more severe cases of these infection, a minor outpatient surgery. So dont panic. Usually, if it is cancer, the lump or bump will actually be attached to the testis itself. The testis may also be swollen and very firm.

The doctors will do tests to see if certain tumor markers are present in your blood, but this is only a pre test, then the next step may be an ultrasound to determine if the potential mass is solid.

You need to tell your parents and get in to see the doctor. Testicular cancer is one of those cancers that can hit very young men and boys, ages 13 to about 27.

So tell your parents and get to the doctor
