I have a query regarding a swelling at my testacles. One testacle has a bulging or swelling. Also i have a bit pain also. Is that cancer symptom. I fear it as a cancer. Sometimes i feel pain at my lower stomach. What might be the disease. I feel shy to consult a doctor on this matter. Also i have itching between my legs. I used an ointment to treat it. Is this problem due to that skin disease. Please advise.

Hi..  FIrst of all cancer of the testis is not painful.. Since you have pain it may not be because of cancer.. However the cause for the pain might be because of an infection or a stones in the urinary track and not because of skin disease.. Consume plenty of water and keep yourself well hydrated. If you are planning to know what the cause and the complete treatment it is better you consult a doctor....

Swelling of the scrotal sac, containing the testicle, due to fluid collection - called hydrocele - is a common ailment. It is a treatable condition. Consult your nearest doctor without delay. If it is chronic then surgery may be needed. The itching in the skin is a different condition, probably a fungal infection. Your doctor should be able to advise regarding this.

3 weeks ago I had a large mole on my back removed, which was discovered to be a malignant melanoma. A few days later I had more of the area removed (Widened by 20mm) and a skin flap to cover the region. The area has healed well, however I am now beginning to experience a shortness of breath (Particularly when I first wake up, it is actually quite difficult to breathe, however improves throughout the day.) I have an appointment with an Oncologist in a few weeks to begin further testing, and was wondering whether this could be related and I should move the appointment forward? I understand breathing difficulties can be associated with the cancer spreading into the lungs, however I would have assumed this would occur in a later stage and I would be experiencing other symptoms? I do also have a sore throat and minor swelling bellow my jaw, so it s entirely possible I just have a cold . I am a 27 year old male.

Hi, I have EXTREME pain during BM and for several hours thereafter. It is affecting all I do. I'm taking stool softeners and putting lanacane on the anus in hopes this helps. I also take warm baths after a BM to try to quickly sooth the pain.

My questions are: how long will this heal if it is a fissure? I am a teacher and will be returning to work in 2 short weeks. I can't see me functioning as a teacher w/ this pain that lasts all day.

How soon should I see any improvement?

As you likely hear often...this pain is INSANE!

other misc info: does seem to be some throbbing/spasming, some blood in stool (nothing I would call 'a lot'), I was working outside in 100degree weather for a few days, drank lots of water and thought maybe the bending over while working caused the fissure.

The pain started 4 days ago so I got prep-H but that didn't help. On the 2nd day I had a BM that came out quickly and maybe harshly, then while still sitting had another that was very loose 'creamy' (texture, not color). After that, I was in incredible pain, up all night walking around the house trying to relax...slept from about 5am to 7am. Went to walk in clinic, they couldn't see any external hemerroids. Did digital exam but I couldn't take the pain, so they pulled out. He tested for blood and there was some.

can't take the pain any longer. will it subside in the next 5-10 days so I can prepare for teaching? should I let my district know I'll likely be out the first few weeks?

Looking forward to relief!!!

thank you
