Lump on testicle

I have had a lump on my testicle for a few years now it doesn't seem to have got any bigger and I don't get any pain and no pulling sensations or anything. It seems to be on the surface of the testicle and I can move it about. It's probably the size of a small pea. I know the ultimate answer is to go to the doctors and get it examined but I have a phobia of doctors and hospitals so really only go if I absolutely have to. Just would like to know people's views or experiences.

Thanks

My view? No one here should offer diagnoses - please go and see a doctor!

Experience? I'm speaking as the friend of a 22 year old testicular cancer patient who has just finished treatment.

Agree with Jabba, go to your GP, whtehr you have a phobia or not, they are there to help you and give you informerd advice, however there are many not so serious possiblities, Ive had similar issues which are cysts and inflammation of a vasectomy scar
hope all goes well

I think you might have syphilis, the painless lumps are a symptom and you need to go to the doctor/ clinic right away to get it tested. Syphilis can be dormant for many years, but turn nasty quick - may cause blindness and death. Your lump might be nothing... but should still see a GP just in case.

It would be grossly irresponsibe for anyone to offer a diagnosis without actually examining you, even if they were a medical doctor, which almost no one on this forum is.

No normal man likes having his balls touched by a stranger, but if you don't bite the bullet and go to your GP you might go on worrying about this for years and years. Add up all that heap of low-grade worry and balance it against the very brief embarassment of being physically examined which will take a few seconds.

Worst case scenario is that you do have something the matter- but if that's the case you'll end having to go to hospital anyway, and having more treatment and more worry than if you'd got it sorted earlier.

I agree that the best thing to do here is to consult a professional. It is always an automatic call for a professional when it's already a long-standing problem and more importantly it involves a very significant part of you being a human. Anyway I wish you all the luck mate.

I agree with KyleBB, it might be syphilis, but you should see the doctor. Yes this is the ultimate answer but when it comes to health, nothing is more valuable than our health!

J-Nevil - it may be that Nick has received treatment - his post is dated February 2013!
