Have somebody take you to the doctors. Surpringly that cancer affects younger people, waiting will just make you more anxious. If it is something, they can do something for you by getting you treatment as soon as possible...most likely it is not, but you can get a peace of mind.

There is no reason to worry about it.

At your age, your chances of developing any sort of skin cancer are slim, and your chance of developing testicular cancer at any stage in your lifetime is about 1 in 250 (there are about 8000 cases a year in the USA and 2000 in the UK).

Even if you do develop it, testicular cancer is one of the most curable cancers there is- modern chemotherapy has cure rates of over 90% for testicular cancer, near 100% if it has not spread. Of all the cancers you could get, testicular cancer is not the one to worry about. There are other cancers out there that are far, far more dangerous.

Being paranoid and thinking about it, does not make it happen.
You can’t be that worried if you don’t want them checked.
