Does this sound like testicular cancer?

I'm 23 years old. I have anxiety and OCD so bad that I take 5 different meds. I wanna include that for the past 7 or so years I've gained a lot of weight to where I'm now obese. Over those years I've slowly been growing breasts, which are very large now. The doctor said it's gynecomastia. Last night I noticed a small ache in my lower left stomach that went on for about 5 minutes. I didn't think anything of it. This morning I went to urinate and I noticed if I kind of press or squeeze my left testi, I can feel that small ache in my stomach that I felt last night, but only for a couple of seconds. I'm scared that I have cancer. Please shine some light in me, this is freaking me out.

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
This presentation of symptoms is not consistent with cancer.Unexplained weight loss, fever,anemia and chronic diarrhoea are alarming signs of cancer.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
