I'm a male --90 years old--While showering I noticed a bulge

Customer Question

I'm a male --90 years old--While showering I noticed a bulge on the left side of my body above my left testicle. No blood in my urine--no pain whatsoever--although lower back hurts when stooping.
JA: Have you had any recent injuries? What seems to make the pain better or worse?
Customer: Yes--tripped--fell down--broke the patella in my right knee this past February--still hurts as it continues to mend also damaged middle finger in my left hand. The back pain seems to leave me when I sit down.
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: Had My Prostate removed (cancer) in 1997. So far so good!
