No rush, but ask: I'm assuming you don't have bilateral hydroceles. Testicular size is quite variable in size, and even vary from man to man over the course of years even if not taking medications. If they've always been quite large, you may have a weak dose of fragile x. A truly hard round lump in the epididymus is usually a benign adenomatous tumor. Your physician can sort this out next visit.
