    OK first comment, little ole ME? Wheeeee!

    You are cracking me up with the freak show testicle talk, but really…go get it checked out!!!

  • September 28, 2008

    I actually just had the same thing happen. Since I am also very pregnant, I couldn’t wimp out on the doctor visit. Mine was an infected boil. I don’t know how it happened, since I can’t really see the area and all, but now I’ve been on antibiotics for a week and it’s almost all gone. So don’t freak out, but do get some drugs.

    Yeah, don’t freak out.  Be safe and get it checked out, but it’s most likely a boil or cyst. 

    Keep us posted, k?

    I can pretty much guarantee you it’s nothing to worry about… it’s either a cyst (most likely) or the bubonic plague (highly unlikely).  It’s very unlikely to be cancer because it grew pretty fast, but not too fast.  If it hurts, or it’s hot, then it’s probably an infection, and it should be taken care of as soon as possible.  If they give you antibiotics, make sure you take the whole prescription, in case it’s MRSA. 

    This is what happens when you watch too many episodes of House.  Hope you’re well.  Take care of yourself.

    Good that you’re not googling and freaking out, but… you *are* going the doctor, yes?

  • September 28, 2008

    I, too, am sure that everything will be fine!

  • September 28, 2008

    Please get that checked right away. 

    That is if you haven’t tried to pop it yet.

    It will be fine I know and if it is a testicle—well girl we’re taking that show on the road.

    PS—why doesn’t your blog ever remember my info—even when I check the box?

    Please get your ‘testicle’ ‘legsicle’ checked right away.
    Please.

    BTW, can I just tell you how much I loves this place and all you did, it’s fabulous. That is all.

    love. me.

    Leslie, this is something my husband fights on a regular basis.  Just this summer he had one removed.  It was a boil.  They grow pretty fast over a couple of weeks.  He said his hurt and it was warm to the touch.  Having it lanced/removed was not fun but it’s not bad.  If that is what it is, its basically a staff infection.  See a doctor as soon as you can and find out for sure what it is.  If it is a boil it will just keep coming back. 

    If it’s not a boil its probably a cyst.  Don’t worry—I know easier said than done. Just get yourself to the doc.

    I had a weird syst on my stomach recently but it just went away.  Better safe than sorry, so head off to the doc… hopefully it’s nothing.  Or a testicle, because really?  That would be the talk of the blogosphere wouldn’t it?

  • September 29, 2008

    Yes, you do need to get it checked out ASAP. I’m sure it’s nothing, but that is where a lymph gland is located and it could be some problem with that. Keep us updated.

  • September 29, 2008

    Don’t ignore it and hope it goes away.  Get it checked out.  Probably nothing, but it’s better to get it looked at and told so, then to worry. 
    Let us know what the Dr. says.

  • September 29, 2008

    Yes, indeed.  I had to comment on this one BECAUSE my best friend from childhood had this VERY SAME THING.  She called it her goiter.  Over time, that puppy grew, bigger and bigger until she was, FOR SURE, not having sex with anyone.  I can remember sitting in her family’s house, her mother’s head between her legs, saying, “Erin, this is HUGE.”  Hilarious!  When it was removed, it had (in her words) “tentacles.”  Whenever I tell that story, everyone in the room throws up in their mouths.  But what a story!  It was totally benign—-and it’s gone now, probably in a jar of formaldehyde for research purposes grin

    hahahaha! You’re growing a testicle. That sucks! Testicles are gross.

    I’m sure you’re going to be fine! The good news? Maybe when they remove it they’ll save you some time and do the landscaping for you! wink

  • September 29, 2008

    Okok, I’ll call the doc. And I’m convinced it’s nothing but Ashley, your story of the tentacle? Pretty much guratnees that I will go running to my doctor screaming, “TAKE IT OUT TAKE IT OUT”. Oh. My. God.

  • September 29, 2008

    OMG. Guarantee. Hai.

  • September 29, 2008

    Yeah, I’d get it checked out, just to be safe. Chances are it’s a boil or a cyst. Does it hurt? My cyst didn’t hurt unless I played with it too much. Now that I have a 2” incision on my arm instead of the cyst, it hurts a lot more!  I should have just left the damn thing there. smile

    I hope it’s something that will just go away on it’s own. That’s not an area I’d like to get stitches!

    I found a little lump underneath my airpit. Could it be a hair follicle? ASk doctor and yes don’t GOOGLE! PS I LOVE YOUR BANNER!!!

    You will be fine, but definitely take care of it if you ever want the big O again.

    Yes, I want to see photos.

  • September 29, 2008

    I hope it is nothing!
