Customer Question
My 29 year old...

My 29 year old son has a left testicle that is the size of baseball. It's hard and has a lot of discomfort.

Doctor's Assistant: Have you seen a doctor about this yet? What medications are you taking?

He has not, only pain relievers.

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you had the pain? What seems to make the pain better or worse?

Couple of months, pain reliever does help, but it's still large.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

Had stones removed two years ago.

What did the ultrasound show?

I have not seen a doctor or done an ultrasound.
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
I would just like to know what can this possibly be?
Urologist: Dr. Arun Phophalia, Urologist replied 10 months ago

This is likely to be hydrocele, which is fluid in scrotum. This requires a minor surgery. Occasionally aspiration can be done.

Rarely this can be a tumor.

Ultrasound would diagnose it.

Please feel free for your follow up questions.

I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.

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.
