Customer Question
There is a swelling above...
There is a swelling above my left testicle, I honestly don't know how to describe it. There is no pain, it just feels different. I was hoping you could help me out. I doubt that it is cancer.

Dear Jacustomer,

I am sorry to know about your symptoms,

Based on what you mentioned,it seems that your symptoms are due to hydrocele,which leads to accumulation of fluid in testis,so I will advise that you see a physician who can do a physical exam,if required sonogram to confirm it.
Cancer seems less likely,as it mostly presents with painless testicaular mass.

Thanks

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
