Thread: Testicular cancer

    Testicular cancer

    Hello all, Iíve posted on here a lot lately due to my anxiety from family drama. And Iím so sorry that I post a lot. I am looking for a therapist but none are available near me that takes my insurance but Iíll keep looking. Until then. Iím stuck with my thoughts. Iím currently stuck in a hotel till our new home is ready so Iím basically stuck with my thoughts.



    I had an ultrasound on my testicles. They said they visualized the right testicle but the left they couldnít. My mom said she thinks I was born with two. So it mustíve went into my abdomen when I was a baby. Nonetheless Iím 23 and I heard leaving it undescended will increase your risk for getting cancer. Iíve been thinking of something that was written on a medical website and it said the following.


    ďBoys who have undescended testes have 2.4 times the risk of developing testicular cancer. The risk goes up if you delay the corrective surgery. For every 6 months delay, there was a 6 percent increase in the risk of testicular cancer.Ē


    Now I did the math and it came out to a 240 percent chance that I have it. But my friend said that made no sense. I have no idea how percentages work but itís driving me mad because Iím terrified I have testicular cancer. I did go to the er for palpitations about a month ago and they did a chest x ray to see if a blood clot mightíve caused it. They didnít mention anything on the X-ray so maybe thatís a good sign that nothing spread? I have had on and off vertigo and some back pains. And my doctor did notice trace blood in my urine but Iíve heard that is common.


    Iím absolutely losing my mind. My ct scan in on the 8th of December but until then Iíll need any reassurance or insight in this. Please. I beg anyone to help in any way. Thank you a ton. Much love.
