Cancer unlikely: An appendix of a testicle (a small lump near a testicle) might be that small, mobile lump on top of a testicle. No lump growth in 7 years since age 14 makes it benign, not cancerous... unless it were to suddenly start growing. A college guy may not have gotten a routine check-up since high school... so this is an opportunity to call for a check-up plus specifically look at the testes and scrotum.
