Ask Your Health Question and Get an Answer ASAP
is it painful?
are you nauseated or having abdominal pain?
it was painful at the start but little pains come and go during the day in seconds
I also feel the testicles moving about alot as i have never noticed this before :(
so my main concern is for an inguinal hernia
good story for it
but a testicular problem is also possible
this is definitely something you need to get looked at as soon as you can
i am going to the docs tomorrow will it need surgery if its a hernia?
is it possible to be cancer?
hernias can get entrapped and this is an emergency
but yours is not entrapped if it IS in fact a hernia
okay, is there a chance it could be cancer?
are is there a chance it could be something that can be fixed with antibiotics?
cancer does not pop up one day while straining at a bowel movement
there is something called 'epidimo-orchitis', which is a bacterial infection of the testicle and epididymus
but this gets progressively worse over a few days and is quite painful
I don't think this is the case with you
so hernia is 90% ?
no, I can't say that
a hernia is diagnosed on physical exam
okay thanks for your time! i will come back tomorrow and let you know!
the story you tell is a good one for inguinal hernia
