Testicular pain

Hey all,

If there's pain and/or swelling in the testicle, always best to see a doctor.

Everybody's gotta try to be like Lance.

Of course, Lance went to the doctor, so that's a good way to get started.

Testicular cancer can affect 1 in 250 men. Go to doctor for exam.

ya, u never know, even at your age, theres a girl at my school that has/had cancer. they caught it soon enough that they think its all gone now, but theres a chance it will come back someday. theres a theory floating around out there, that everyone will get cancer...someday, if we could live long enough, meaning you could be 300 before you get it, and some people are born with it.

but I dont feel it when I'm riding
haha, biking is now a proven medicine, now go out and ride 24/7 and you'll be cured in no time!

This happened to a buddy of mine once...

One week later. Dead.

Can I have your bikes?


Seriously, this did happen to a buddy of mine and it was testicular torsion. When your nut gets twisted around in your sack. It is very serious and hurts like hell. We brought him to the ER and they ID'd it in about 2 minutes and he was under the knife in under an hour.

If you are having sharp pains, go to the ER immediately. Otherwise doctor tomorrow.

You should really lurk a bit before posting something like that on these boards. It could get ugly.

Get your nut looked at dood. (by a professional)

There is some medical name for it. I had that problem on my road bike with a new seat. The pain goes away after a few days if you quit riding, usually. You can search the forums.

But to be careful, get it checked out by your doctor.

For the life of me, I fail to understand WHY people ask about pain & medical conditions HERE!!!!

You either have testicular cancer, some other ailment, or your nut just hurts. I'm not qualified to tell you which one it is.

Like they said, go to the doctor. If it is riding that's causing it, try a saddle with a channel in it to take pressure off that nerve.

how is it any different than going to a doctor when you're 18? or 23? or 45? you should take care of yourself! seriously, it could be nothing, but it could be really, really bad.

when it comes to the human body, believe me, a stitch in time saves nine. a bird in the hand is worth two in the bush. etc.

See a doctor.

I went to high school with a kid who developed testicular cancer at about 15 or 16. Just so happens he was a national champion bmx racer. Was it the bike riding? Maybe.

He is fine now because he went to a doctor.
