I am a 40 year old male, usually fit and well. I have noticed

Resolved Question:

Hi. I am a 40 year old male, usually fit and well. I have noticed a lump on one of my testicles. With this, I have an ache in the area around the lump and spreading upwards (almost like the feeling after you've been hit in the groin). I have a G.P appointment in 2 1/2 weeks time. Is this something I should ask for an earlier appointment for (emergency appointment), or should I not be too concerned?
