Usually no symptoms: Most often noted as a mass which is not symptomatic. Test would be a physical exam not a lab test. You and/or your doctor can examine your testicles.

Palpable mass: Testicular cancer usually presents with a painless mass in the testicle. Systemic symptoms are rare unless metastatic at presentation. Rare tumors can produce hormonal side effects. The best first test is an ultrasound of the scrotum.

Usually hard lump: Found on scrotal examination or when washing or showering. Tumor side of scrotum may feel "heavy". No pain unless there is a bled into the cancer. Scrotal ultrasound is very reliable, ono-invasive & simple to perform. Can be ordered by your primary care dr. Or a urologist.. Fortunately prognosis is usually very good if diagnosed early. Good luck.
