What you feel is likely a epididymal cyst. It can be at the top or bottom of your testicle. I am not sure why you think it is not attached to the epidydimis when you feel it. If you want to make sure please visit your family doctor.

If stable, no: If these have not changed, they cannot be herpes. During your next physical exam, ask your physician what they may be.
