Testicular cancer

Last reply: 1 year ago

Hi there!

My name is Carlos Pedrosa García, I am 25 years old and I just find a lump in one of my testicles. I am a bit scare because it hurts when I touch it. I am from Spain and I current live in Dublin for almost 4 years. I am not really sure how to process that and I don’t know where should go to test it. I have insurance with Irish life health I hope that helps. Would like to have an advice in this situation and see what should I do first.

Thank you very much.

Kind regards,

Carlos.

Hi Carlos,

Thank you for contacting the Irish Cancer Society.

I am sorry to hear that you have recently found a lump on your testicle. It is important that you have this reviewed by your GP. Your GP will review your symptoms and refer you on to a specialist if necessary.

This must be a stressful situation for you, especially when you are only living in Dublin four years. You may find it helpful to contact one of the cancer nurses on our support line – Freephone 1800 200 700, Monday-Friday, 9am-5pm.

Kind regards,
