I constantly feel like killing people. I'm angry at

Resolved Question:

I constantly feel like killing people. I'm angry at everything and anything. I constantly feel that I am suffering from cancer of the testicles even after two doctors said nothing was wrong, as I had an issue when I was a child.One of my testicles is half the size of the other. My doctor checked for testicular cancer and said I was fine and both testicles were in the scrotum, but he never mentioned anything about the size difference, but I am concerned about it?

I have an obsession with murderers and gruesome stories. I perceive my future unrealistically and often think about it. Help?

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Hi there. Thank you for your question. I will be helping you out with your queries

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Have you been seen for this as yet?

Dr. Shahzad MD :

I mean seen by a psychiatrist or referred to one?

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Do you have any other medical problems?

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Are you on any medications for anything presently?

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Please let me know.

Customer:

No I haven't been seen by anyone yet. I was thinking of approaching my GP and talking about this. I constantly worry also that one testicle is half the size of my other one, but doctors have seen this and never mentioned I should be concerned, but I constantly worry about anything and everything, always thinking of the worst possible scenario. I am not on medications nor do I have any medical problems that I know of.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

You should definitely be seen by your GP and be referred to a psychiatrist.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

You are having hypochondriasis.

Customer:

Thank you. But from what I have read it is only normal for one testicle to be slightly bigger, mine is nearly half the size of the other one?

Dr. Shahzad MD :

The best thing to do is a testicular ultrasound

Dr. Shahzad MD :

that will definitively rule out a tumor or anything serious.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

If you have had an ultrasound of the testes and it is normal then I would not worry

Customer:

I've asked about that but two doctors checked and said it was fine.

Customer:

Thanks for your help.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

You are most welcome
Wish you all the best.
I would appreciate it if you rate me by clicking on one of the smilies below.
Kindest regards

Customer:

Sorry, I misread you. The doctors didn't give me an ultrasound they physically checked.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

You should request an ultrasound.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Go to the GP and request an ultrasound and if that is normal that will definitively rule out anything serious.
