Nothing
Expert:  Dr Hayat replied 10 days ago.

Any problems with the urine ?

Customer: replied 10 days ago.
Nope
Expert:  Dr Hayat replied 10 days ago.

Ok..First if all it's nothing to worry...It is probably folliculitis or cellulitis..Just need to apply some hydrocortisone ointment over it for a few nights..would settle

Customer: replied 10 days ago.
Are you sure doctor? Are you able to see the bump properly?
Customer: replied 10 days ago.
Are you there?
Expert:  Dr Hayat replied 10 days ago.

Yes ...I can see it ..its not cancer..rest assured..

Customer: replied 10 days ago.
If it was cancer then the lump would have been on the actual testicle itself right? Instead of under the skin of the scrotum?
Expert:  Dr Hayat replied 10 days ago.

Absolutely...

Customer: replied 10 days ago.
Okay thank you so much doctor.
