    Re: Testicular Cancer

    And today I've been leaking like it's going out of fashion. I also seem to have a very vague feeling a lot of the time that I need to go to the toilet, but I could just be overthinking it and tricking myself into believing I always need to go.

    Just go to the doctor then. What can anyone do for you here?

    Re: Testicular Cancer

    Finally got round to seeing a doctor today about my testicular worries. I explained to him I can feel a lump, he examined me and said all was well. He made me feel very reassured and you could tell he knew his stuff. He still asked me if I wanted an ultrasound which I turned down, but anxieties have crept back in, like what if he missed the lump? He said he thinks it's the epididymis I'm feeling even though I don't think it is. It doesn't seem like the right place. He said it expands with the more sperm present, and at times my lump does seem to do that, and it does feel like a tube.

    He also asked if I'd experienced pain, I said a bit but I thought it was because I kept prodding it, the pain got better, but every so often I can feel very mild pain, but it's hard to tell where it's coming from.

    Did you explain your constant fears and ask about help for your anxiety?

    I was thinking about meds in addition. You're mind is always reeling and perhaps meds could help calm you down.

    Re: Testicular Cancer

    Back to my leakage problems, it happened again tonight and now I'm getting worried. I know prostate and bladder cancer are unheard of in someone my age but why does it keep happening? It's happened before I go as well twice, but it could have been from the last time, but surely this indicates a problem if an hour or two after going to the toilet I'm leaking.

    Re: Testicular Cancer

    Do you not realize the pattern of health anxiety you're in? Just yesterday you were worried about bowel cancer! Did you speak to your doctor about maybe going on meds?

    Re: Testicular Cancer

    Yes of course I see the pattern, but that doesn't mean every single problem is fine, or that health anxiety and cancer are mutually exclusive. And I can't go back to the doctor so soon, they'll be offering me a loyalty card next.

    You could tell me I'm being irrational, or explain what's going on
