Can Surgery for Microlithiasis prevent testicular cancer?


 I wonder if you could kindly help me.  Any assistance would be deeply appreciated.

 I have been experiencing some pain in the left testicle for almost 12 years.

 Since 4 years ago, I had a number of ultrasound exams done.

 All the ultrasound exams showed that I have small hydroceles and epididymal head cysts in both testicles.

How long does the anger and hate last towards the ones you love?

I am a thyroid cancer sevior 5 years, When I first started dating  my boyfriend 2 years ago I noticed his testical was off. This winter I almost died do to doctor error, which caused me to lose my ovary in February of 2016. After this happend his testical became a huge concern for me, even though he wasnt at all. We are both 31 with no children so this seemed like it should be a big deal. Once his sleep paterns and habbits changed I knew something was wrong.

Fear of more chemo

I have an upcoming appointment for bloodwork to see what my tumor marker count is at. Depending on the count, I will find out further ttreatmen plan. I have already gone through a session of chemo, and it was terrible. Lots of throwing up, nausea, pain from the surgery, no energy, etc. I'm finally feeling better, but to be honest I am terrified of the upcoming appointment. It doesn't help that I am stationed over seas away from my family. Does anyone have any advice?

Long Term Effects of Radiation

I had surgery and underwent radiation for testicular cancer about 30 years ago when I was 25. In the last few years, I've experienced urinary problems such as frequent and sometimes a suddenly urgent need to urinate. I have also had issues with weak stream and difficulty starting to pee.  These are all signs of an enlarged prostate, but I have been checked repeatedly and my prostate is normal and so is my PSA.  My doctor thought that the radiation may have left scar tissue that may be interfering with my bladder function.  Has anyone else experienced these issues?

Chemo's impact on the brain

I am 61 years old married male and a 10 year cancer survivor. They found I had testicular cancer at the age of 50. It took the doctors a while to find it but eventually they did but the cancer had grown into my kidneys and up into my chest. A plan was put together to go thru the chemo treatments to kill this bug I had. We understood some of the impact the chemo treatment would have on me (possible loss of hearing, ringing in the ear, static in the ear, loss of strength and body tone, etc...) but we never talked about the impact chemo would have on the brain.
