If it's assymetrical, get it checked out. I know a few men who have had to have a testicle removed and it doesn't have much of an impact on your life. The worst thing you can do is procrastinate, then even that may not be an option.

A small lump could be a simple as scar tissue or as serious as cancer. The only way to tell is to get it checked out ASAP. Hubby's was scar tissue, but he had to go through a surgical procedure to get that good news. Good luck.

continue to check at least monthly. Testicular cancer targets ~17 - 26 y/o.
