I am new here and have never really posted on any type of health forum before so I apologize in advance if this is not the correct formatting.
I am a 29 year old (male) 200lbs, 6'3". About 4 months ago I found a lump in my left testicle. I was in the urgent care (4 months ago) due to some shattered ribs and brought it up to the E.R. doc and he quickly (5 seconds) "explored" down there and said it was probably nothing and issued an Ultrasound but he did not seem worried about it at all. I didn't go to the Ultrasound because I had to leave the next day for a business meeting on the other side of the world and was just looking for quick treatment for my ribs.
Now I haven't put too much thought into this because I've been so busy with my business and didn't want to be distracted along with there is zero pain down there, but today I did notice it has grown, maybe ~50-75% increase in size from 4 months ago. Believe it or not it's in an odd place at the base of my testicle so it does take a few seconds to find.
I have no family doctor because I'm all over the world constantly and I'm not sure if this is a proper "emergancy room" issue.
I guess what I am asking is; I have no pain, no other symptoms, how likely would this be testicluar cancer. What are some of those symptoms I should be watching out for and would you go to the emergancy room (E.R.) for this?
