Unlikely cancer: However needs to be checked by urologist + scrotal ultrasound to rule out cancer. You are a little young for testicular cancer, although rare, does occur in childhood. Will probably turn out to be a calcified appendix testis (scrotal pearl). Good luck. ...Read more

I have a lump the size of a marble on the inside of my knee, it is very painful when touched.

I have a lump the size of a marble on the inside of my knee, it is very painful when touched.

Baker's Cyst: Pain behind the knee with fullness and pain suggest a possible baker's cyst. A baker's cyst is a natural outpouching of the knee joint that can get full of knee joint fluid and can make it difficult to move the knee. This should however be evaluated by an orthopedic specialist for a proper diagnosis. ...Read more

I have something that feels like a small grain on the tubelike structures in my scrotum. Is that just the appendix of the testicle?

I have something that feels like a small grain on the tubelike structures in my scrotum. Is that just the appendix of the testicle?

Here are some ...: A palpable tube-like structure inside the scrotum most likely represents a vas deferens - the tube to transport sperms in testis /epididymis for ejaculation with the fluid of seminal vesicles, or its nearby appendages. But to verify what it's, have Urologist to palpate so to reconcile what you felt. But, if not hurting or increasing in size, leave it alone. So, you decide. At 16, talk with parents ...Read more

? Spermatoceles: Might be small epididymal cysts (spermatoceles), actual heads of epididymisor appendices to testes. Could each be a thrombosed appendix testis of hard like a grain of rice, so called scrotal pearls. They are benign. However, any enlarging hard testicular lump must always be worked up to rule out testicular tumors. ...Read more

I have a lump on the top of my testicle that I can move around but it still feels sorta connected to the testicle. Is this a cyst or cancer?

Spermatocele?: You are likely describing something called a spermatocele. This is a cyst at the head of the epididymis containing sperm. Unless they are causing symptoms they are left alone. They do not interfere with fertility. Cancer will be a hard area felt on the testicle. Best to see a physician to be sure it's a spermatocele. ...Read more

What could a small hard bump on testicle be? It's under the skin on the testicle on the side of it. Does not move and is sore and sensitive

What could a small hard bump on testicle be? It's under the skin on the testicle on the side of it. Does not move and is sore and sensitive

Please get it ..,,,: Checked. A growth is concerning. However the fact that it's painful makes me think it might be epididymitis (inflammation of the sperm ducts) rather than a tumor. Either are treatable, but you need to catch the latter early. Good job on doing self exams ! ...Read more

Found a hard pea size ball on the outside of my upper thigh on the larger tendon. its tender and hurt a bit to rub it. wondering could this be a clot?

No DVT: There are no deep veins on the upper outer thigh so there cannot be a DVT at that site. You can have a superficial vein that is swollen in that area or perhaps just a fatty tumor in the skin. Go to the doctor and have it checked out. ...Read more

Sebaceous cyst: The sebaceous cyst is a firm rubbery subcutaneous lesion that's freely movable to the skin and has a central open that if squeezed too hard a white thick smelly oil will express from the hole. Do not pick on the whole simply apply warm soapy compress as they open up on its own, if not surgical treatment maybe necessary to remove it. ...Read more

I have a small lump under the top portions of the epididymis on the testicle. It is present on both but the right one has a small balloon covering.

I have a small lump under the top portions of the epididymis on the testicle. It is present on both but the right one has a small balloon covering.

Here are some...: Glad the concerned spots are in eipididymides, commonly seen, and benign - not cancer. The surest way to handle them is do nothing if not incurring unbearable mental and physical pain and anguish because surgical removal leaves the affected area with a scar and potentially affecting sperm transportation leading to infertility.

The doctor told me it waa normal to have a bb sized ball in or on the epididymis on the left testical and right beside the epididymis on the right one?

Appendix testis: Yes, it is due to a little (bb size) outgrowth from the testicle itself. It is usually painless, unless it twists and loses blood supply. Brief info here: http://en.Wikipedia.Org/wiki/appendix_of_testis. ...Read more

Got this red lump with a tiny lump next to it on the top of left leg and near bladder scared it might be genital warts?

Got this red lump with a tiny lump next to it on the top of left leg and near bladder scared it might be genital warts?

Probably not a wart: First, a "red lump" doesn't sound like a wart. Second, as the name implies, usually they occur on the genitals (mainly the penis in men). A wart could occur at the top of the leg, but quite unusual. Third, only one wart would be unusual. Generally several of them show up at once. See a doctor if you remain concerned about it. Also ask the doctor about getting the HPV vaccine. ...Read more

After being hit in the face I have a large round lump on the jawline of my chin under the skin which hurts when touched. What could it be?

After being hit in the face I have a large round lump on the jawline of my chin under the skin which hurts when touched. What could it be?

Hematoma: I would recommend that you should consult a physician and get x-rays done to rule out mandible or jaw bone fracture.. My guess is that you probably have developed a hematoma which is a collection of blood under the skin. Large hematomas sometimes need to be evacuated surgically. While smaller ones can resolve spontaneously. ...Read more
