hi doctor I can ask you this question as well
undescended testis if partially comes in sac after about 30 years is their any cancer related problem. the size is large but no other issues. what are the symptoms of testicle cancer and when is the real need to treat it.
undescended testis up to 30 years
and then partially coming into the sac
still carries risk for cancer
so are they any symptoms
usually it is asymptomatic
but the person has no problems.
I mean is it guarented to cause cancer?
Painless swelling or nodule of one testicle is the most common presenting symptom.
Dull ache or heavy sensation in the lower abdomen could be presenting symptom as well
more than 50% chance of getting cancer
Ok so this is my cousin and he says the foillowing
during his birth where he had only one testes visible and other was not visible doctor said that as he will grow it will come down .all these days he thought he only had one testes but recently he felt the presence of the other testes while sitting for bowels. and in past 1 year his other testes have come partially down.he says when he stand's or walks it is half down in sac and when sitting for bowels it comes complete in sac but when he sleeps it completely disappears.so its not lose like other testes in sac but tightly held.another important thing is the size of this testes is 2 times in size of the other.he has no pain and so unsure does this cause any harm and needs treatment. one more important point is this change had happened after 30 years. please advice what he needs to do. he is hesitant to share with his family
please give me a minute to read this
are you there?
what is that
I mean wha t is done in that
it is a procedure
A syringe is used to collect testicular tissue
and it is studied under the microscope
this will rule out cancer
ok if it does not have cancer can it be left as it is?
it can be left as it is
it needs periodic evaluation
so if at this age he has not developed no cancer will in future it wont develop cancer ?
Once annually for any changes
There is a lifetime risk of getting cancer by 5%
