"Testicular Pain"

About: Stracathro Hospital / Urology

(as the patient),

After visiting the Dr some years ago with lumps in my right testicle, I underwent a ultra sound scan and was informed I had cysts. A couple of years later I noticed that one of the cysyts had got larger and I was experiencing pain in the right testicle along with pain on my right hip and lower back, to the extent I had to take time away from my work.

I eventually got another appointment at the Dr's and was sent for a referral at the Urology clinic at my local hospital, I attended this clinic in October at Stracathro Hospital and Urologist at the one stop Urology clinic suggested I have a MRI scan to get to the bottom of the back/hip/testicle pain.

After the statutory 12 week waiting period, I contacted my health centre to chase up the scan, and was told they hadn't received any notification from the Urologist, so I contacted the Urologists secretary and explained the issue, and she said the clinic would need to request the letter, to date I still haven't had a scan, still suffer pain, sometimes excrutiating across the back/hip and testicle.

I am extremely sorry to hear of the difficulties you are experiencing in getting a date for your scan, and the pain you are experiencing. Unfortunately I am unable to look into this without further information. I would be grateful if you could contact me 0800 027 5507 (freephone) to discuss or, if you would prefer, email me via the Complaints and Feedback Team (feedback.tayside@nhs.net).

I look forward to hearing from you.

Kind regards.
