Bear with me, When I was 20, I applied for the regular army but got deferred due to a lump they found on my left testicle; I was pretty gutted but got it checked out immediately from two different doctors and a specialist (has an ultra sound on my testes). I never perused the army after that due to family deaths and such and getting married. Now I'm applying to the TA and have my selection weekend on April 20-22 at Glencoarse. My doctors never fixed the problem because of it being so trivial, and it causes me no discomfort in over 12 years. I went into the doctors again to have it checked, and again, I was told it was nothing grave and not likely to be anything serious. I have the original report from 1999 about the tests they did, and I'll write what the specialist has said. ULTRASOUND - TESTES: the testes is intrinsically normal. There is no evidence of any epididymal cyst. The features are those of a minor degree of left varicocele (varicose veins on the baw) Also the kidneys are also normal. A copy of this report was sent direct to the patient at his request for on-wards transmission to Army recruitment. Will I still be failed on this trivial thing that has never caused me and problems, never hurt, ever gotten bigger, and never stopped me from doing extensive sports? I know you guys aren't doctors but what do ya think? I will be pretty pissed if I go down to glencoarse and get sent back home the 100 miles because of something so trivial. I still have the copy of the Radiology report to take down with me in case.
