How do I know if I have a lump in my testicle and how does it feel?

Examining Testicles: Just like women are taught to examine their breasts, young men are taught to examine their testicles. Testicles are often shaped like almonds. One will always be larger than the other. The texture of the testicle should be smooth and without lumps or bumps.

I have a lump on my testicle and I have some questions?

I noticed a hard lump on my testicle.  what should I do?

Agree: And you need to have this lump checked asap. Testicular cancer is not very common, but it's highly curable when caught early, and very bad when it's not caught early.

What could this lump on my testicle be? Should I be concerned?

I have a hard white lump on my testicle for years now.  It doesn't usually cause me pain but recently popped and now is starting to.  Is this bad?

Here are some ...: What you described is not enough to know if the hard lump is in the scrotal wall or really inside the scrotum because many laypersons tend to describe a lump in the scrotal wall as in the testicle. If in scrotal wall, such hard lump is most likely a sebaceous cyst which may develop superimposed infection like a boil. If inside the sac, it requires a direct look and palpation to ... + / - US for Dx ...Read more
