See a urologist soon: Testicular lumps should be taken seriously especially at your age. Get examined by a urologist at the earliest convenience. Many testicular lumps are benign, but some can be cancerous. There is good treatment, but you need to get examined soon. Many benign lumps can be observed, not all need surgery.

Ultrasound: If it's a painless mass on the testicle, cancer would be a concern (though not the most likely). If it's tender, and especially also seems to be coming from up higher in the groin area, it may be an inguinal hernia. Other possibilities are hyrdocele or varicocele. These are benign conditions sometimes treated with surgery, depending on the symptoms. See a doc, please. US may be recommended.
