I am 23 yrs old and have had Crohns for 5 years. 3 weeks ago I found a lump on one of my testicles. I went to docs next day and he had a feel. He has referred me for an ultrasound on the testicle but the waiting time is 4-8 weeks. Could the lump be Crohns related? confused

No, I don't think so. Did he comment on the lump? Try not to stress too much. I would call the ultrasound department and ask if there have been any cancellations to get yourself in sooner for your own piece of mind.

I actually know a guy who had testicular cancer in his early 20's and he's totally fine now.

We are not doc's so I would not rule anything out, but please do get it checked out.

Definitely get it checked out. I've never heard such being a symptom of CD. 4-8 weeks seems like a really long time to wait for an ultrasound -- I could get one in 1-2 days.
