I was in Southern California and my right ball was slightly sore.
At the beginning I thought the pain might be caused by the heavy keys in the right hand pocket of my trousers banging against my testicle as I walked along the street. The pain stayed for a while and then it went away and then it came back.
For that, I would have to get an ultrasound; the hospital would contact me to arrange that.
She didn’t think it was cancer, she said, as there was no sign of a lump anywhere. The bad news was that the pain in my right ball grew more annoying.
One evening, I made my way to one of the London hospitals and was put in the line for accident and emergency. When a doctor finally saw me, because she was a woman and it involved my balls, she had to have a nurse with her while she was inspecting me.
As the doctor looked at my testicles, the nurse looked at me and at the doctor. The doctor said there was nothing in the blood or the urine that pointed towards a clear diagnosis.Pain generally increases with the size of the inflammation …A hydrocele might be associated with an underlying testicular condition that can cause serious complications, including infection or tumour. I wrote stuff during the day and then attended a few parties and wandered in galleries in London and went about my business in the pretty sure knowledge that I had a hydrocele.Fish sauce and shrimp sauce are added to the soup according to taste.Ingredients might be varied by regions due to their availability.I was doing readings every day, selling my melancholy stories to the people of Orange County and places south.I wondered, some days, if there might be a doctor in the audience who, if I made a suitable announcement at the end of the reading, could make this pain in my right testicle go away. When the readings were done, I went to LA and ignored my balls. But the veins around it had decided to swell up a bit.I managed to make an appointment with a urologist in Dublin and flew home one morning in late June.As soon as he examined me, the Dublin urologist seemed concerned, though he said nothing.It can also include cubes of congealed pig blood, which has a color between dark brown and maroon, and a texture resembling firm tofu.Bún bò is commonly served with lime wedges, cilantro sprigs, diced green onions, raw sliced onions, chili sauce, thinly sliced banana blossom, red cabbage, mint, basil, perilla, Persicaria odorata or Vietnamese coriander (rau răm), saw tooth herb (ngò gai) and sometimes mung bean sprouts.
