I have a lump underneath the skin of my penis, i know this dosent fit into testicular cancer, but its the closest thing to it.

Im 16 years old.. and i keep telling myself its nothing, im too young to get cancer.. but im quite worried. its a small lump thats hardly noticable unless i have an erection. ive had it for 1 possibly two years, but im too afraid to go to the GP etc, as crazy as that sounds. can anyone offer me advice?

hey,i dunno if u have read my story,but i'm a twenty year old i got testicular cancer when i was 19 and it spread cos it was not noticed early,i am sure by your description of the lump that it is not cancer but you are far better off going to get it seen to,the longer you leave it the more damage it will do..if u have any more questions just ask

Yeah its much better to get it checked out early.Chances are it nothing to worry about but best to be safe
