Hello, I had RP about 8 months ago- healing up good, no leakage, psa undetectable, ed continues. My post is because over the last month or so I have noticed a small pea sized. lump at the bottom of the left testicle. It seems to come and go. If it sticks around I will call my Ur, but was wondering if others have noticed anything like it - possibly something with the ED process healing?

friends,

I had the opposite situation. I had a pea size lump for years in the same side and spot, and many doctors looked at it, all of them thought it was a harmless cyst. After my rp, a few weeks into recovery, i noticed it was completely gone. I asked my surgeon about it, and he said he never touched it. But its gone for good. I would still mention to your Uro, since in your case it wasn't there before.

I have noticed lumps like that and they seem to come and go, Doctors have felt them as well and my impression is that it is not abnormal to have these. I don't hink they are associated with RP but what do I know?
I think that I would have my GP or uro look this over on the next psa draw?

I never had a lump post RP, but I had a lump a few years ago. It's worth getting them checked out, if only for your peace of mind.

They sent me for an ultrasound, and a very attractive 20-something technician ran a handheld ultrasound scanner across the "guys" for about 15 minutes while making chitchat to distract me.

Lemme tell ya, it beats the hell out of a prostate biopsy. turn

friends, did you get the lump checked out?  My husband had a lump within the testicle and needed surgery last month.  Thankfully, it was benign.  He is still recuperating from the surgery.  I hope all is well with you!

Get it checked.
Is it a lump on the surface of the ball or in among the wiggly tubing? My understanding is that sometimes after surgery the tubes can get congested as they have been severed at the top end, but best to get it checked by an expert.

For what it is worth, I wouldn't consider a GP an "expert". Go to your urologist.
