Been having a lot nut pain the last few weeks out of the blue. Had my nuts snipped back in 2004 dr said I had "something" he n there and to keep an eye on it.
When this pain and swelling started I'm like uh oh..
I got an emergency appointment at the ultrasound clinic last night.
Turns out I have a very large varicose vein in my scrotum feeding one of my nuts.
I suppose that's good news but walking around feeling like someone just kick me in the nuts five minutes till all the time is not so great

Not cancer , here I was thinking I was going to have to end up like Lance Armstrong a one nutter.
But I'm going to have to have surgery on my junk so I can keep on working and riding.
Anybody else here had that happen to them??
I stand 15-16 hrs. a day at work so simple pain management and the rest is not gonna work for me..

ouch! good luck working that out. on another note, how do you manage standing that many hrs a day? how do your legs and back handle it?

I've been a chef for 30 years. I'm more comfortable standing than sitting lol.
I had my surgery involved a catheter in my jugular and a micro surgical dohickey all the way down to there.
They embolized the vein essentially plugging it permanently.
1 week of bedrest to let thing " set"
My sack is now half the size it was before , like a nut lift. Lmao
So glad I got it done :)

take the time to heal, the riding isn't really that good right now anyways.

Yup have not rode yet but did do a litttle boarding at cypress yesterday with no ill after effects. Im giving the trails and my junk some more time now though. If this surgery fails me then I get much more invasive version of it involving clamping off the veins/vein which means incisions and stitches yikes.
