It varies: Testicular or scrotal lumps, whether they are benign like cysts, or cancer, can be hard or soft. If you feel something, it is important that you go to your doctor and get an ultrasound.
Just so I know to watch out for it. Are there any signs besides testicular lumps for testicular cancer?
Lumps most common: Pain is usually not present, so lumps are the most common symptom.
Pathology & location: Testicular cancer occurs when germ cells inside the testis become malignant and grow to form a mass. Epididymal cysts, are outside the testis in the epididymis, and are benign fluid filled bumps. It can sometimes be difficult to tell by self exam, so an exam by an physician is important. Based on this exam, a scrotal ultrasound may be ordered, which will help make the diagnosis.
Malignant vs benign: Epidermal cysts are benign and can be left alone. Testicular cancer can kill if not treated and is one of the cancers for which available treatments are effective. See this site for info on testicular cancer. Http://www. Mayoclinic. Org/diseases-conditions/testicular-cancer/basics/definition/con-20043068.
Please help! I want to know the difference between testicular cancer lumps and epidermal cysts lumps. What's the color, size and location?
Go see a doctor if y: If you have any testicular swelling, you need to go see a doctor, preferably a urologist. You, yourself will not be bale to tell the difference between the above conditions.
No: Testis cancer occurs most commonly in the testicle, occasionally it can grow in the abdomen. If you're feeling a lump on the scrotal skin, it is mostly likely a sebaceous cyst or infected hair follicle. Now that many men are "manscaping" or shaving their genitals, I see a lot of scrotal bumps. If you're concerned, a quick medical evaluation can confirm.See 3 more doctor answers
When checking for testicular cancer, is it still a concern when there are lumps on the "tubes" leading from testicle to the body?
Maybe: It's hard to say without doing an exam. You may be just noticing normal structures, but varicose veins can frequently occur in this region (varicocoeles). This may also need an ultrasound if your doctor thinks it's needed. Btw, kudos on doing self exams!

Diagnosis most likely an epididymal cyst or some other benign testicular or scrotal lump.See 1 more doctor answer
No: Some testicular cancers can diffusely infiltrate the testes without forming a discrete lump. The cancer may then present with generalized swelling. Why are you concerned?
Yes!: It can definitely grow and the growth is very concerning. If testicular lump is detected and especially if its growing, immediate medical attention is crucial. Early detection of testicular cancer is important as in early stage testicular is a curable disease. If scrotal lump arises from testicle, further evaluation with ultrasound is performed.

Need evaluation: All "lumps" in the testicle need evaluation. Please see your family doctor as a start.
The term means: "new blood vessels". Not sure if this is read from an u/s report, but to answer you question, only a biopsy provides the critical tissue to determine if cancer or not, and if cancer what kind. If the testis is enlarged and this report, i'd get an alph-feto protein and HCG blood test on the way to the or.
