Testicular Adenoma Causing Low libido from hyper secretion

Patient

Q: What does a testicular adenoma thats producing hormones look like?

I was taking a drug called finasteride and i developed severe testicle pain on the right side like thousands of other men. I stopped the drug and for the next 2 weeks i became hypersexual. THen i woke up one day with zero libido, loss of facial hair, gyno, higher voice and other feminisation symptoms.

I saw a doctor and an endocrinologist and they tested me and found nothing wrong.

As in this study, a random amount of rats got leydig cell adenomas from finasteride

Leydig Cell Tumors
http://emedicine.medscape.com/article/437020-overview

Adults with androgen-secreting tumors are generally asymptomatic. Manifestations in adults with estrogen-secreting tumors include the following:

Loss of libido
Erectile dysfunction
Infertility
Gynecomastia
Feminine hair distribution
Gonadogenital atrophy

I believe this is the source of my symptoms. How do i get diagnosed with this IF it is the case? Is it possible an ultrasound wont pick up a small adenoma in the leydig cells?

thanks.
