Get an exam: Seek out your physician to undergo a physical exam and make sure anatomy is normal. There is usually nothing wrong with one testicle "hanging" lower than its counterpart. Everyone's anatomy is slighty different. As for the smoking I have no idea why there would be a relationship. But advice to stop smoking is appropriate.

Not uncommon: I gather you had a "suprapubic catheter" which can leak at the skin level for up to a month as the skin heals around the catheter....After the first month there is a matured track that allows the catheter to be exchanged. For now, just keep the skin clean with soap/h2o and gauze dressing. Your urologist office should be available to help if concerns persist.

? hernia: A physical exam by his physician should be able to narrow the possible reasons for the lump and take corrective action as indicated.
