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 its 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

Had u/s for lump top of right testicle on epididymis. The nurse preforming it said no bloodflow in bump. TC or cyst? Seems connected to head of epid.

Lump testicle: Hello ~ please NEVER use abbreviations. I have no idea what TC means. If it's a solid tumor, it would be in the testicle and has a very HIGH chance of being cancer (a seminoma, teratoma etc. If its in the CORD, and the epididymis is the CORD there is about ZERO chance of being cancer and MOST likely is an epididymal cyst. You leave it. But make SURE of the location. CORD or TESTIS. Big difference. ...Read more

I have a bump by my left testicle? What could that be

Rule out tumor: Hard painless lump on testis could be a tumor, tiny lump could be a scrotal pearly which would be end result of a twisted calcified appendix testis (benign). Soft bump could be prominent head of epididymis or epididymal cyst/spermatocele or small hydrocele. When in doubt check itout with a urologist. Scrotal ultrasound usually provides answer. Sooner the better if a tumor, almost 100% curable. ...Read more

I have a small bump on my testicle, doesn't hurt or anything, looks more like boil, what could be?

Here are some...: The mention of "... looks more like boil ..." suggests the small lump is beneath the skin of the sac (scrotum), which most likely represents a sebaceous cyst — a cyst of overactive sebaceous gland of a hair follicle, and is harmless as long as being not infected like acne. Nonetheless, a direct look at it is essential to verify what it is. So, seek evaluation and counseling timely. ...Read more

Large bump on my testicle, popped it and a clear substance came out then blood, it keeps getting back up to size every 5 min?

Here are some...: Most likely the described bump is a sebaceous gland-related cyst and has been manually fiddled resulting in its internal oozing and exuding. So, stop squeezing it and have a doc take a look for confirmation so to deduce right Dx for right Rx, care, and counseling now and in the future. ...Read more

I have discomfort coming from my left testicle. I checked it and I couldn't tell if it was swelled but no bumps. I wear boxer briefs every day.

See answer: Periodic discomfort in one's testicle(s) is not an uncommon occurrence and in the absence of any noticeable swelling or palpable masses or "lumps" is likely to be self-limiting and short-lived. Often related to mild irritation or congestion and observation and an otc NSAID (ibuprofen) may be all that is needed. Persistence or worsening of discomfort, swelling, lumps, etc warrant a visit to the md. ...Read more

I have a small hard bump on the skin of my Testical skin It hurts when i touch it or squeezed. I put a light under skin and its doesn't look like fluid?

See below : Most common cause of a lump within the scrotal skin is a sebaceous (aka epidermal) cyst. Caused by plugging of the sebaceous glands. Leads to a smooth, round, firm, off-white lump. Usually painless unless irritated or infected which commonly occurs when one tries to squeeze and "pop" it. Avoid this as it is not like a "pimple." Treatment: if large or bothersome, surgical excision. ...Read more

Consult a urologist: Most 'bumps' on the testice are benign & such things as a small harmless cyst of the epididymis (just above the testicle or a calcified appendix testis. However, could be a small/early testis tumor, if lump is hard & painless. In which case is best to consult a urologist who may advise in favor of a scrotal/testicular ultrasound. ...Read more
