I found a lump in my husbands left testcle. He saw his family doctor who sent him for an ultrasound. They said nothing, now his doctor is sending him to a urologist.
The lump is in the scrotum but is connected to the testicle what should he expect from the urologist?
There are a variety of benign (and malignant) conditions of the scrotum and testicle that can present as a lump. The urologist will examine him and review the ultrasound results. Based upon this assessment, the urologist may recommend additional tests, biopsy of the mass, or even removel of the testicle (if there is a strong suspicion of malignancy).
