Get seen: If the testicular mass is new, or you don't know, and it's not present on the opposite side, get seen. We don't want to miss testicular cancer, which is fairly common at your age.

Recommend assessment: You should have a physical exam. While a very small lump where anatomic attachments are on the testicles are normal, anything that has changed, is painful, or non-symmetric from other testes should be checked out. It may be nothing, but catching scary issues like testicular cancer early holds the best prognosis. Best of luck and hope every thing works out well!
