DP had a sore lumpy bit removed when he was a teenager. It was a twisted vein inside the sack. I think it was extremely tender for a while but he lived to tell the tale and fathered three children (that we know of, I'm sure he would want me to say grin)

Hope its straightforward for your friend.

The consultant will probably do an ultrasound if its a cyst then tend to drain it with a needle and syringe not do the whole removal thing,I assume the GP doesn't suspect cancer at all or he shuld be seen within 2 weeks.
If he does have to have orchidectomy ( as its known!)its a general anasethetic but only a 1 or 2 day stay normally.

A friend of mine had testicular cancer 2 years ago and had it removed (a few days in hosp I think - he's in NZ so I wasn't there) and all is well. But it did take two visits - the first time the GP told him it was nothing, then he went back a few months later and they referred him. So it's good that your friend is going to see the consultant soon.

I know they provide silicone prostheses for dogs when they are 'done' in order to not appear different, so I guess they can do it for humans. Then again, he shouldn't sit down on hard floors too quickly in case it clunks grin

They definitely provide silicone prosthesis, both for cosmetic purposes and so there isn't a weight imbalance, iykwim!

I shouldn't share so much buuuut, DP has one testicle slightly smaller but its certainly still there, and really, you'd never know unless you.....well y'know the rest grin

SL, grin now I might. Camping! Hope your wee man had fun.

It was fab - ahem do you mind if I complete this strangely appropriate hijack Califrau - (because tbh I'm a little bit scared of the hardcore camping threads; I need to do more camping to be allowed on...) It was DS's first ever camping trip and he loved it so much - we bought him a £6 child's camping chair from Millets and he just adored it - he sat in it the whole time we were putting the tent up, crossing one leg over the other like someone on newsnight review. Then he proceeded to sleep happily all night and woke up at 7. Can't wait to go again!

High five to "hardcore camping" lol. SL that sounds fab, CAMP ON grin

now, Califrau, lets get your man sorted...... in the part of the world I am from we'd say "goney goin whap them oot fer us an we'll hae a gander"

DP said post-vein removal felt like he'd been whacked between the legs with a cricket bat sad he was only a teenager though.

Poor boy, spread all over the thread like a tabloid hussy. I will watch with interest and wish him well. Keep us posted.

Have they said they are going to remove the lump Califrau? DH is the king of bollocky lumps.. and had never had any removed.. mainly they go down on their own. He always gets them checked out though, obviously.

ach, bring him in Califrau, soon he will grow to love us and us him grin

frumpygrumpy Fri 31-Aug-07 17:37:14

I haven't looked at the top shelf. I have asked DP to bring a couple home to, eh, increase my knowledge but he's a scaredy.

frumpygrumpy Fri 31-Aug-07 17:37:32

Forgot my grin
