    Bump on testicle?

    Bump on testicle?

    I know this is TMI but I woke up with a small brownish bump on my testicle this morning. Could this be testicular cancer?

      I suggest that you contact your doctor just to be on the safe side. in the meantime, here is some info from the American Cancer Society regarding testicular self exam: http://bit.ly/PAtRqu

      Without more information it is difficult to answer the question. In particular, I wonder whether your description is accurate. Do you mean that you found a brown lump on your scrotum? I am guessing that this is the case since there is no way to see your testicle underneath the scrotal skin. If this is the case, then it is very unlikely to be testicular cancer. Testicular cancer affects the testicles, not the skin. You might feel a lump through the skin, but you would not see it as a dark spot.

      That said, if your lump feels like it is on the testicle and does not move when you move the scrotal skin, then you should see a urologist. If the lump does move when you move the skin, it is not testicular cancer, but it might be something else. If it doesn't go away in a few days, go and see your regular doctor and ask about it.

      There is never TMI on this site.... if you're concerned we are4. Call your doctor.. set up an appointment so that he can give you a trained medical opinion. THEN please come back here and let us know. We really do care about one another.

      Don't take chances or put it off like I did. My delay in getting to a doctor almost killed me. Early detection is the best way to survive testicular cancer.
