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.com/eNewsletter06.html; thereby you gain much insight to work with doc so to reach right Dx for RX ...Read more

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

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

Scrotal scars: These are very common. They are often fluid filled cysts from scars in the tubing in the scrotum that come with age and life experience. We usually leave them alone unless there is a chronic pain to them. I also see that you have had a vasectomy. This procedure can also have left you with some mild scarring as well that you can feel through the wall of the scrotum. ...Read more

What is the best alternative for treatment of a hard lump in my testicles without going for surgery ?

What is the best alternative for treatment of a hard lump in my testicles without going for surgery ?

Don't have such fear: A hard lump in your testicle is serious business. First the urologist will probably order an ultrasound test. If highly suspicious intervention can save your life. A famous olympic athlete had surgery to remove the hard lump (it was cancer) followed by chemo and he was able to win a gold medal in his sport. If your lump is not cancer then you can rest easy with that knowledge. ...Read more

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
