I know us blokes like to tough things out ("it's only a flesh wound" ) ..... but I think I'd have been seeing my GP a little earlier..... :o

You'd be surprised how many men have enormous testicular growths of various aetiology.  Hernias, hydroceles, tumours - you name it, blokes will ignore it.

My Grandad's testicular hernia is the size of a football, it affects his walking, but he refuses to have surgery.  Just a flesh wound is about right for his attitude  ::-)

Some of us are right wimps, though, and get seen as soon as possible at the slightest thing that goes wrong.
Oh, Bach without any doubt. Bach every time for me.
