walt, you should go to a urologist like greg said. my bf had pain in his left testicle for over ten years and let it go thinking it was nothing. but in december of 2003, he was diagnosed with testicular cancer and had it removed and had radiation treatment following surgery. if it's gotten bigger since you last doctor visit, dont hesitate to go and have a urologist look at it. take care and please let me know how things are going. ~ Lori

well my 2 cents may not be helpful, but im 19, i was in the same boat, mine started out the size of a pea, i went to a doc, they wanted to say it was an infection, but then i made it a point that i wanted to see a urologist, so i was set up two weeks later, and in that amount of time it had almost doubled in size, so i it from a pea to the size of a dime in two weeks time, but the thing is, i had no pain and no nausia, and later that i had found out, that i had caught it in stage 1, so i was very lucky,......but the best thing to do is get to a urologist and get it gone, it wont be easy, but it is worth having your life.

good luck man,
