First off, I don't have it. Or at least I don't know that I have it. However, over the past few days the right one, the lower hanging fruit in my case, has been a little sore.
I have never, ever properly 'checked' myself. I saw some video on GMTV years back that showed you how, and there are obviously lots and lots of things online that tell you how to do it.
If I try to do it, it hurts a little and I feel nauseous.
Reckon I can get a scan or something without having to get my nuts out in front of the GP?
I am not an expert, but you would expect, if it is a tumour, to have an obvious lump, actually so that it is visible or painful in a very particular area.
Alternatively, there is a possibility of a cyst that might be causing a tube to be blocked inside the sac. This is different from a tumour and fairly easily remedied, if it doesn't in fact just go away.
The other possibility is that its being knocked, in the ordinary course of events, such that you've bruised it, without actually causing lasting damage. Because of their life-giving properties, all mammals have evolved stronger than normal pain receptacles in this area, to make sure you look after them properly!
Just repeating what everybody else has said - get 'em checked. I once had to. If it's embarrassing, you're just going to have to get over that. The relief of an all clear (and yes I've had that too) is much better than the moment you have to get them out for a stranger to look at....
...and it is nothing close to what you endure to have the old prostate check up, which we all have to have at least once in our lives...
