Show pediatrician: B"sd very good for you to have noticed. This needs to be evaluated. Most common I believe would be a scrotal hernia, with varicocele maybe next. Testicular tumor would be very rare at this age. Your pediatrician will probably be able to diagnose with physical exam. In any case get this looked at in the next day or two to limit possible damage to the testicle.
