I have a hard lump close to or attached to my left testicle?

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 feel a tiny lump on top of my right testicle near the spermatic cord, its like hard grain rice, but it doesn't occur on the left one! Is that normal

Could simply: Be a small spermatocele. If it has been there a long time without enlarging or with any symptoms it is likely benign, but you might want to have your doctor check for you. However, if it is enlarging you definitely need to see your doctor. ...Read more

Have had dull ache near left testicle for 3 days. I found a small (rice size) hard lump on testicle. Should I go to ER or try Dr on Mon? What wrong?

Here are some...: I assumed the rice-sized hard lump is a hyperactive sebaceous gland on the sac and the ache is in the sac also. Without further info on history and physicals, it's hard to deduce definitive answer, but to sort the related things out can be done by following instructions described in http://formefirst.

Confirm it by...: By history, you might have developed the common condition called hydrocele, but what you palpated inside left sac indicated the pressure inside hydrocele is not high and that lump may not be necessarily related with left sac injury 2 years ago. How to have the things of care done rightly? Follow instructions described in http://formefirst. Com/eNewsletter06.html. Then, you can work better with doc. ...Read more

Dull pain in lower right abdomen, cough, shortness of breath, and also found a small lump on left testicle. What could it be?

Don'tIgnoreFamJewels: I entered "dull pain+lower rt abd+short of breath+lump left testicle" into Watson, the super-super computer and after 45 minutes of beeps and flashes it came-up with "BURPO." So much for super-computers. So, back to the drawing board. If I were you, I'd focus on that testicle lump right now (i.e. ASAP) and get that figured-out and at the same time you can tell them all about everything else. ...Read more

Hi I have a lump on my left testicle what should I do?

See a doctor ASAP!: Testicular cancer is one of the few cancers that can happen to young men. There are also many benign things that it could be, that are much more likely, but since that one little cancer diagnosis is something that needs to be ruled out right away, please see your doc asap! The good news is, even if it is cancer, you will have caught it early. This is a great lesson for guys to check testicles! ...Read more

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

I have slight discomfort in left testicle there no lump just pain....What could it be?

Testis pain: Most cases of pain in the testicle will resolve on their own. I would see your primary care doctor to make sure you don't have an infection first. A scrotal ultrasound may also be helpful. I would advise that if your symptoms persist longer than three months, you should probably see an urologist. ...Read more

I get this hard knot/lump on bottom of right testicle that flares up, it comes and goes and is painful.

See answer: Symptoms consistent with recurrent epididymitis and the "lump" you feel is likely the swollen, tender, inflamed lower portion of the epididymis which is a sausage-shaped gland that lies adjacent to the posterior-lateral aspect of the testicle through which sperm pass from the testicle to the vas deferens. To verify and/or get a definitive diagnosis, best to see a urologist when lump occurs again. ...Read more

Testis mass: Based on your description, it sounds like you may be feeling a normal part of the anatomy, such as the epididymis. Testicular cancer is usually hard and not squishy. However, at your age, if there is any question then you should have it checked by a urologist. ...Read more

Husband is just mentioning a hard fixed lump in testicle which is not painful and has grown in size over last few months any thoughts?

Must rule out cancer: A swollen testicle or one with a lump, especially one that feels firm, is a sign to go see the doctor this week. One can see his primary care doctor first, who may refer to the radiologist and urologist to further evaluate and do an ultrasound scan, if testicular cancer is suspected. If there is a cancer, it is treatable by removal of the testicle, and getting follow-up care. ...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?

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
