Scared of TC or torsion!
« on: May 06, 2014, 04:23:53 PM »
For awhile now, I was doing pretty good with this pain but now it's back.  I was at work today and out of nowhere I got a gradual pain in my groin on the right side.  It's not the actual testicle, but above it.  While the pain is discomforting, it's not unbearable.  I checked it in the bathroom and it looks and feels fine - like it always has.  I have had this problem for about 2 years on and off.  I'm just really paranoid about this...and the doctors say I'm fine but I don't know...help.  :/

I have vague pain like that, turns out I have prostatitis. I have been doing warm bath soaks and taking an antibiotic, it has been helping.

Thank you...it's reassuring that the pain is excruciating.  But, if it's not a torsion, then could it be cancer?  Like I said this pain has come and gone for about 2 years now.  First it was mainly on the left side, now it's almost always on the right.  I'll have lower back pain, abdominal pain, and the groin pain.  I can't tell if the testicle itself has grown at all, but it doesn't feel abnormal at all - even the doctor said so.  Could this be testicular cancer if it's not a torsion?

Get a testicular ultrasound, TC usually has no pain, it's also the more treatable type.
