I'm worried about this because i've heard about testicular cancer before and this being an early symptom. Basically, i have just recently noticed a single small spot on one of my testicles. I've had normal spots on/at the base of my penis a few times, which i hear is fairly common and they usually go to regular spot size within about 1 or 2 days but this one has been there for maybe 2 days now and its still quite small. It's near the bottom of my right testicle. Anybody know what testicular cancer spots would look like or have any advice? Should I go and see my GP?

I haven't a clue about it, but I'd say go see your GP, better safe than sorry.

I know nothing about testicular cancer, but I think if it's worrying you, you should go to a doctor, it's the best way to clear your mind - far better then anyone can diagnose you over the internet.

I used to get these quite a lot and i too worried at first. After a while, i realised most of them were zits so i popped them lol gross i know. But, the point is, i went to see my doctor and he told me it was quite common in young guys but always better safe than sorry and advised me to always get them checked out if they are there for longer than a week. So i guess checking with your doctor is the best option for you.

Is it actually on your testicle or on the scrotum?

As far as I'm aware, spots on the ball-sack are not indicative of cancer.

If it's pussy it's probably not a big deal. Even if it isn't it's unlikely to be testicular cancer. However you should get it checked out so that you can at the very least get rid of it.

I've had something similar. My GP gave me this rule to follow:

- If the spot feels as if it is on top of the skin of the testicle, it is very likely a skin condition

- If the spot feels it like it is coming from below the skin (i.e. when you feel your testicular skin, the spot/lump is underneath the skin rather than on top), it could still be a skin condition but absolutely needs further investigation

As a general rule, anything that has been there longer than 2-3 weeks should be looked at.
