Scar/blood clot: Probably scar tissue related to the suture material, the normal healing process, and/or a blood clot. Probably not dangerous. See your surgeon for an exam to be sure.

Need to check: You should have that evaluated with a doctor's exam and an ultrasound, to make sure it is not a testicular cancer. Since you have had previous surgery it may just be scarring, but regardless you should have it evaluated to be safe.
