Panic over !!

OH said to me yesterday can you check me as i have found a lump in my balls.
Sorry but cant hide it as another name.

He certainly did have a BIG lump on the underneath of it and when i found it and put a bit of pressure on it it hurt !!.

You think the worse but I played it down and said we need to get the doc to check it out. Our Surgery was very with it and he got an appointment for 11am. Doc was running late as usual but we finally went in and after hubby trying to explain I had to take over and tell him the problem and that hubby had a lump in his testicle.

He examined him and couldn,t find it so I had to show him where it was . Doc said that's his scrotum which is not as worrying as testicle cos that will raise alarm bells. I had to say I am not that up on male anatomy I know the names but not where exactly everything starts and finishes lol.

Well he could see the problem cos it was all red and hurt to touch and he said was an infection starting in that area and he prescribed antibiotics as didnt want it to turn into an abscess.

The lump this morning has broken and lots of muck came out but OH will need to take the 7 day course.

As i said panic over but I did worry what it was and were we going down a route we dont want to go .

That area isnt nice when it gets problems whether its for male or female .

His grandad had cancer of the bowel as did his mum so its always a worry

Folks he more has the problem with not doing up his flies more than playing with his bits. lol

I have to check him before we go out cos he was trained by his mum to go to the loo as the last thing before he left the house.

Keep telling him he doesn't want to frighten the old ladies or the horses with his flies undone. !!

Bless, the last thing you need is more worry Shirley, glad it's sorted out now.

I had a boss once who would go for a wander in his lunchhour and stand watching the girls go by, always rattling the change in his pocket, he was known for it lol As we worked next to the railway station, he had plenty of variety of young ladies on parade.

So glad he managed to refrain in the office!

My OH getsinfected piles.

It used to be a visit to the doctor, who must really have been getting fed up with having to keep getting his bicycle lamp out, and a course of anti-biotics.

Then he had one over a bank holiday and I suggested he sit in a bath of Epsom Salts.Did the job just as well so that is how we treat them now.

The best part is tthat he has his packet of sanitary towels in the cupboard for when it happens.

An abcess on the danglies must have been pretty uncomfortable I would have thought.

My friend had an uncle who always stood jangling the change in his pockets, we called him George.

EDIT We called him Jangling George ;-)
