Hi hopefully this makes sense ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

I've noticed I've had pain when right before ejaculating and during which seems to be from the right testicle ๐Ÿ˜ฎ I've also felt a lump Which is tender to touch on my right testicle I also what I can describe as hardish veins? (Not visible)

I've had this pain for around 3 weeks and its starting to worry me a lot.

I've not masterbated for over a week thinking it would sort its self out but the pains still there:o

I'm terrified about going to the doctor

Any idea what this could be?

At a guess - varicocele on the testicle. Doctors can help. It's not life-threatening. (Testicular cancer doesn't hurt, apparently.)

I would seek professional advice from your doctor. He may be able to help and relieve symptoms if not provide some kind of cure.

Get a male one. A hot female one will just lead to embarrassing erections.

Cheers for the reply I've had a look at what you suggested and it doesn't seem to mention pain when ejaculating anywhere.

I guess the only way to find out is via a doctor at the moment I'll just put up with it and see if it gets any worse ๐Ÿ˜ก

Don't wait until anything gets worse, just get down the doctors and get them to check it out. You've got nothing they've not seen before. :rolleyes:

Jeez. Get yourself to the doc. Even if it's not a killer, what if it's something that could risk you ever having children? Right now you might not want kids but in 20 years' time you might regret such a decision.

Your main need at the moment is to find some way to force yourself past this fear of seeing a doctor. No strainght man likes the thought of another bloke touching his balls, but THERE IS NO ALTERNATIVE!

You need something powerful to balance your fear. Some suggestions-

1) Tell your best mate- he will probably keep on at you to go to the doctor, and he'd be less easy to ignore than strangers on a forum. Your embarassment at having to tell him you still haven't been will help to balance out your embarrassment about going.

2) Close your eyes and imagine the older man whom you've most admired and respected in your life. Imagine yourself asking his advice. Imagine his reply. Then follow his advice. Imagine what he would say if you didn;t go.

3) Remind yourself that your doctor is a professional who is trained not to cause you unnecessary discomfort or embarrassment. He is not some bully from your school days. He spends most of his day examining elderly people who are much more fragile than you. He will need to feel for the lump but he will do so gently- that's how it's done.

No one on this forum can diagnose you, and even the world's top GU specialist could not and would not diagnose you without actually seeing you!

Hope you got it sorted out. Would be interested to know what was the cause of it.

Tbh i've still done nothing about it ๐Ÿ˜ณ Uts got to the point now where after sitting for periods my right testicle feels numb,slowly building up the courage to go Docs.

I'm finding it easier to talk about with my friends who keep encouraging me to go & get it sorted.

Go, for gawds sake...

Choice of

a) feeling slightly embarrassed and then realising the doctor doesn't actually give a shit, he's just going to do his job, and help sort you out.
b) leave it till it becomes such a problem and pain that it's too late to do anything about and you die.

Truth is, I had to go to the doctor about a lump there too... was obviously worrying what it may be. I just thought stuff it, and went to the doctor. He examined it and said I'd need to go for an ultrasound, but he didn't think it was anything to worry about.
I went to the hospital for an ultrasound, where a very nice young lady was doing the scanning (ok, a little embarrassing having a young lady smear lubricant all over your nether region, but not a problem in the end, she was very professional), and she put my mind at rest that it was just a cyst.

Just do it.

Really does leave me scratching my head as to why you bothered to register on this site, come an open forum and ask the question in the first place - if you won't listen to us, and I'm pretty sure your mates are talking to a brick wall and will soon get bored when you ask their advice ...... again..... either get it sorted or don't - the choice is now entirely yours.

I have worked with cancer patients for 36 years - by far the majority are survivors, who have listened to advice, and got it sorted. I also talk as the mother of a young woman who is engaged to the post wonderful guy, who at 24 has had a reality check, simply because he was so determined that a little lump wasn't going to stop him doing anything. He found a lump. She told him to get it checked. He did, and within 3 weeks, he had one testicle removed. 2 rounds of chemo therapy followed. In November last year he was given the all clear. He is back climbing mountains for fun. He took the girl to Skye last April, dropped on one knee and popped the question. He knew full well, that if he hadn't taken advice, there was a huge probability he would never have been able to ask the question.

Stop being a knob.

I think it would be obvious as to why i would register on this forum for advice.

As you prob read from my post im terrified about going to the doctors.I've been self-conscious about my body all my life i dont even wear shorts so you can imagine how id feel about dropping my trousers!

I'm sorry i don't seem as confident as some of your patients!

Initially i wasn't to happy with your response and it left me a little angry but after sleeping on it your right.

I've booked in for Wednesday 7:30 i've got to see the same doc as i have an ongoing condition with my arm but im hoping it'll be alright to mention afterwards.

I dont really feel any lumps just my right testicle is very tender feels hard painful when sitting goes numb etc and i get pain before ejaculation

They don't like it when you bring things up in addition to the appointment's original reason - time constraints rather than not caring.

I had a similar problem to you. I too never wear shorts nor take my top off in public (used to as a child??!). Occasionally, I get an ache down there but have had the full check and they concluded there's nothing wrong and it's just the way I am... a pain in the balls. ๐Ÿ˜€ The most awkward bit was when I had a very attractive doctor on her knees in front of me. I did my best to think of the equities market.

You may be completely different. Your symptoms do sound a lot worse than mine.

It depends on your doctor, but at ours you don't book for a specific issue, you book to see the doctor, and as long as you go in to the doctor saying "There's a couple of things I want to see you about" then they're pre-prepared for the second thing after you've covered the first.

At the end of the day, the doctors may have certain amounts of time allocated per patient, but if you take 10 minutes more, it'll be covered by the patients after who take 10 minutes less, so it all balances out for them in general.

Good luck with it all. The best thing you can do is to try and get it sorted.

Thought I'd update the thread.

Went to the docs got the original appointment reason out the way and thought if I don't mention this now I never will so I went through with it.

Obviously its a little embarrassing and I wish the room was warmer lol but I feel better for going through with it.The doctor was actually very reassuring and cool with it.

Said he couldn't feel any lumps but that I might have a slight infection which is the reason for pain think he said epididymitis.I've also given a urine sample just to rule out std's but I'm pretty sure its not that as was he.

I've been put on doxycycline for 14 days and I'm hoping it sorts the problem out.The only negative is there making me feel quite sick and I'm struggling to eat food as as soon as I go to eat I gag.

The one thing that did alarm me was when I mentioned pain before ejauclation to which he said was quite common?? I've never experience that prior to this.

I'll update the thread after the tablets have taken there course.

Ouch. Epidydimitis is painful. It is the bit of the testicle where the sperm grow btw. Doxycyxline can make people sick - but it will pass. Be careful to stay out of the sun while you are taking it tho. That warning SHOULD be on the label so make sure you DO read the label and the leaflet. Also avoid milk for 2 hours before or after . Hopefully you are only taking it once a day. Hope you feel better soon

Thank goodness!

Now you have jumped that hurdle, has it made you stronger and a little more confident? Do you now feel that if someone in your situation, came to you for advice, you would be able to look them in the eye and say "get an appointment and get it sorted"???

My OH took Doxycycline when he went to the far east as an anti-malarial. He was told to take it two hours after/before eating, and to swallow them using a large glass of water and stand up when taking it. He always thought his GP was taking the p*** with this recommendation - but apparently not!!! It made him feel queasy for the first couple of doses, but wore off once he got involved in work.

Well done for getting to the doctor and getting the courage to ask about it. See... it wasn't that hard or embarrassing was it. ๐Ÿ˜‰

At least now you can take the medication and see if that helps clear things up, and if not you'll be ok to go back to the doctor and speak to him again.

Let's hope the meds work for you.

Complete the course of meds first... it may take a while to clear up if it's an infection, especially as you sound like you've had it quite a while.
If there's no improvement when you've completed the course, get back to the doctor for more tests etc.

No need to be paranoid, it's quite normal for some parts down there to feel tender if you press them.

If there's a slight swelling it may just be a cyst, but best you go back to the doctor if you've completed the meds and it's no better, and they can arrange for you to be checked properly (ultrasound scans are painless so nothing to worry about).

Ok, well, veins down there are quite normal, as it's an area that has a lot of blood flow, so I wouldn't be too concerned about that, but of course get the doctor to check it out again.

It could of course be that you're prodding and poking so much because you're concerned, that you're making it tender yourself, but if the antibiotics haven't seemed to make any difference then you can rule out an infection, which is one positive thing. The doctor will probably want you to go for an ultrasound scan next; but talk to them and see what they say.
