Hey everyone thanks in advance for a reply.
I woke up Thurs AM at 3 with TERRIBLE right testicular pain. Wen tot ER at 7AM, had ultrasound. Ultrasound revealed RIGHT torsion, AND they found a mass in side my left testicle. They did emergency surgery to correct torsion, and orchiotomy on left testicle.
I am home from hospital (in great pain). Meeting with Urologist Monday to review pathology report.
QUESTION: Once I receive pathology report, what is process for getting into an oncologist? Is this process quick? Does it take weeks to get in, months to get in? Just wondering about timing on HOW quickly I can get started ensuring any cancer is OUT OF MY SYSTEM. (I did have CT in hospital and no cancer cells reported in abdomen).
Thanks for any insight.
