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. Now the tubing that leads to the prostate gland and the blood vessels are often very lumpy but should not hurt to light touch. ...Read more

Benign conditions: I doubt that these two conditions will affect your fertility. So do not worry about them except if you have a problem in having kids once you are ready to have them. ...Read more

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

Get examined: Most of the time new lumps are benign things, but you need to rule out the possibility of testicular cancer. A doctor can many times by just physical exam make a diagnosis. For those times when things are unclear, simple imaging tests like ultrasound can help make a diagnosis. The first step, though, it for you to go see your doctor. Do not wait. It is better to be safe than sorry. ...Read more

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

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. Some men are reluctant to have it checked because they are afraid of the answer. Reacting with fear and not getting it checked can be a life or death mistake. Have it checked now. ...Read more

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

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

See your doctor: Testicular lumps can be cancer or benign. You don't want to take a chance of misdiagnosing yourself. Testicular cancer can be extremely aggressive so don't delay. Go see your doctor for a thorough exam. S/he may order an ultrasound to determine if you have a mass inside the testicle, but hopefully it is something benign such as a cyst or varicocele (dilated blood vessels). Good luck! ...Read more

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?

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

I have a lump on my testicle, it just appeared, it sometimes burns and a lot of the time it itches. There are also many little craters around it.

See answer: Though it is not possible from your description or without a physical exam to determine the diagnosis and nature of your "lump", any testicular mass or "lump" (especially between the ages of 15-49) should be evaluated by a physician to rule out the possibility of testicular cancer. There are a variety of benign lesions/masses that can arise within the scrotum that can generally be dx'ed by exam. ...Read more

See a urologist: You may have sustained a minor testicle rupture as a result of the injury. This could have led to a sperm granuloma which can be tender. It is worth your seeing a urologist and probably getting a scrotal ultrasound. All testicular lumps should be checked out in cast they are tumors because it might havr been there before the injury and bled as a result of the trauma. ...Read more
