Default Hypoechoic solid nodule on left testicle

4 weeks ago started some pulling sensation on my left testicle. Then 3 weeks ago, had ejaculation and left testicle was in slight pain. Slight fever. Went to hospital and did ultrasound and found hypoechoic solid nodule on left testicle (0.2x0.3x0.4cm). Saw urologist yesterday. Told me there's no biopsy involved when comes to checking for testicular cancer. Too risky. Asked me to go for 2nd ultrasound in 2 months time.

Questions:
1. Is it there's no testicular biopsy to check for testicle cancer?
2. 2 months to go for 2nd ultrasound? Isnt that too long? What if it spread?

Hi there and so sorry to hear about this worry you have been having.

Ultrasound of the testicles is the normal way to diagnose and do not worry about the timings, doctors and hospital do have to stick to protocols and timings for dealing with cancers. Blood tests can also show up any abnormal activity

For most cases the only way to safely take a biopsy is to remove the affected testicle completely. This is because specialists often think the risk of the cancer spreading is too high for a conventional biopsy to be taken.
Your specialist will only recommend removing your testicle if they are relatively certain your lump is cancerous. Losing a testicle will not affect your sex life or ability to have children.
The removal of a testicle is known as an orchidectomy. The main form of treatment for testicular cancer is removing the affected testicle, so if you have testicular cancer it is likely you will need an orchidectomy.

Yes I am suer it is. Anything that feels right generally is right and I cannot see that you would suffer from that. Check with the doctor though I am quite sure that it would not be a problem for you.
