My 23 year old son found a lump in his testical today. He had surgery when a baby to have it brought down. He does not know if he needs to get to a doctor immediately at urgent care, or if he can wait out the several weeks it takes to be seen as a new patient.

I reckon that he should have it checked right away. Not having testicles descend on their own after birth makes one more prone to developing testicular cancer later in life.

There is no logical or scientific explanations to this but experiments, trials and data all appoint to that.
Although a lump in the testicles doesn’t necessarily indicate cancer, your son has predisposition, so it would be wise to have it checked as soon as possible.

In case they don’t want to except him at ER and send him home and tell him to wait, I would be wise mentioning undescended testicles.

There are many other causes of testicular lumps. It could be bacterial infection of the epididymis, a tube in the scrotum that lies on the testicles. These infections usually have additional symptoms like pain in the testicles, swelling, a lump, fever, etc

He may also be feeling some of the anatomical testicular lumps. For example, this epididymis that I’ve already mentioned is a lumpy tube and its lumps may be felt.

There are certain cysts that may appear, so the lump doesn’t necessarily indicate cancer but due to the risk and predisposition, I reckon your son should see a doc right away.

Early found testicular cancer has the highest rate of being cured.
