Hi I'm a 18 years old male and lately I've been feeling dull/aching pain in my left testical. It's almost like the same feeling you get when you get hit there. I felt a lump on it a while back but it's gone now, at least I can't feel it anymore. I'm very scared it might be TC. Is the percentage rate for TC at the age of 18 years old high? And do you have to remove a testical if you do have TC? Any help would be appreciated, thanks.
At least you've taken some action. Now you can know that you will be going through the proper diagnostic requirements. Please check in with us after you've seen the doctor. Let us know what happened and what consultation was given. It could help someone else!
Okay, I went to get my ultrasound today. They said everything was perfect, I was normal but they couldn't explain why I get the dull aching pain. And they said if I feel the lump (that I felt before, it's gone now) again or if anything new, I should go back to them. I'm going to go to my urologist on the 1st just to get a follow-up, I'll let you guys know if anything comes up.
Ok, I seen my urologist today and he told me that the reason why I'm feeling pain is because my it's inflamed? I have phimosis and he said that is the reason why my testicles are inflamed, the urine and waste don't come out right.
He gave me some medications for the pain and the inflammation and I'm going to go get a circumcision soon to see if it will solve the problem. Anybody have had a circumcision when they were 18 or older? Can anybody share their stories?
