Testicular cancer ? Fluid inside testicles ...

User Profile
I am very worried that i might have Testicular cancer But i am not sure. I first noticed something a couple of years ago when i first started pubity however thought it would go away. I read up about it and thought it might be somthing else. However i read about what i thought it was and it cant be that. It feels like its full of fulid, when i stand up it becomes very large and spreads to a large area on my left testical. When i sit down there is nothing there and both tescials feel the same. I am pretty sure that its part of the tube leaving the tesical itself. Its not hard and does not hurt its. I can move my fingers through it. I am planning to see my docotor but i am so worried that its cancer and might ruin my future. Thank you for your help.

Given only your description (“feels like it’s full of fluid”, “when stand becomes very large and when sit there is nothing”, “it is not hard” and “it is not painful”) we cannot exactly diagnose the problem, but we can suppose that you could be experiencing either a hydrocela, varicocela or scrotal hernia. A physical examination by a urologist is absolutely necessary to identify and diagnose the cause of these symptoms. Testicle cancer is a less possible diagnostic option because testicular cancer is persistent and does not change depending upon the position the body is in.
