Testicular cancer, losing a pelota, effects?
I started a thread awhile back that I had found a lump on my one testicle.
After several embarrassing exams and ultrasounds, my doctor is encouraging me to have the testicle removed to be safe. I guess it still could be cysts (I now have two lumps :( ), but it also could be malignant (testicular cancer). They’re just not sure without being able to run tests on the lumps.
Does anyone have experience with losing a testicle? I’ve been told that I can get a prosthetic one put in. Maybe I can request an extra large one.
I’ve had testosterone issues in the past – is this going to severely effect T-levels?
How about my ability to have children?
Any advice or experiences would be appreciated.
