Nick, I would suggest you not to panic
Doctor :  
at this stage
Doctor :  
Go to a surgeon and get it examined once
Doctor :   Let him examine the swelling
Doctor :  
and then we can come to a conclusion
User :   should i bring up to the doctor my past sexual relationships or do you feel that is a non factor. the reason i am worried is my parents are super catholic and will kill me if i have an std or something
Doctor :   Ok
Doctor :  
Do not worry about that
Doctor :  
It has a minimal relation as it has been explained by the doctor in your previous chat as well
Doctor :  
Hence you can disclose it to doctor
Doctor :  
and keep it confidential
Doctor :  
Do not worry
Doctor :  
STDs do not have such a presentation
Doctor :  
that too after 6 months
Doctor :  
hence that part can but just ruled out
Doctor :  
and needs to be thought in other terms
Doctor :  
It can be an infection, or due an injury or a tumour
User :   ok good i am prolly just worrying way to much. i am about to be in a serios relationship and i am worried i will give her someking of std. i dont want to hurt her. i am just stressed i guess
Doctor :  
of the testicle, scrotal skin, epididymis

It is your good character in you

in not harming her

Doctor :   Ok

Doctor :  
You can go to a General surgeon or a Urologist
Doctor :  
Urologist is better
Doctor :  
Is that helpful?
User :   yea, i just more worried than anything, hopefully it is nothing bad. i more worried because i have not ate a decent meal in a whole week and im losing weight
Doctor :   Ok

Doctor :  
To rule out serious tumors the examination will be good enough
User :   i also take concerta, and saraquil, im not skizafrenic(spell?), i have a lot of trouble sleeping. the saraquil makes me get real hungry, which is good right now since i havnt been eating, then puts me to sleep
