Testicules: Hi. Given your age you must be seen and an ultrasound ordered to assess this lump. Not to worry you too much but you are right in the middle of the age range of men who get testicular cancer. (this is found in men aged 26 to 32). ...Read more

Hard bump at base of left testicle can feel it attached to other bumps that make a line. .. Please help is it tail of epididymis? Only on left testic

You'll want: That looked at. While without an actual examination, I cannot give specific medical advice on your particular health, I can give most of the entire list of possibilities. Most likely not a very bad thing (bumpy vein, or scarred epididymis). But the scarred epididymis implies infection (probably Old but can affect fertility). Hard lumps in testes should be evaluated for a very treatable cancer. ...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

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

Small sore smooth bump on left testicle pain fades as days go on. Mild pain only when I press on it or touch it firmly. Bump is hard and immobile?

See a pro: Bumps, soreness, nodules--if it's in the skin, testicular skin is not all that different from skin elsewhere (however touchy the subject is for us males). But "immobile" (and "hard") may mean something under the skin. That ought to be looked at. ...Read more

Not herpes: Unlikely to be herpes. Having said that, is the man you're referring to at risk for contracting herpes in your opinion? If so, then, of course, there's no guarantee that he couldn't have herpes unless he were specifically testing....but it doesn't sound like it from your description. ...Read more

I found a 2 milimeter sized bump on my right testicle and don't know what it is, help?

Likely benign: Could be a scrotal "pearl" from a calcified appendix testis, or a tiny cyst. Probably best to see urologist for reassurance & certainly if it gets any larger & there is any question of a testis tumor. All testis tumors have to start out being very small. Diagnosis easy to confirm by ultrasound. Good luck. ...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

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 everyday.

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

See your doc: A mass on a testicle is not "normal" to use your wording. Please have a doc do an exam. It's quick and easy and you will find out what is going on and what to do if necessary. Good for you to do testicular exams but the second step is a follow through with the doc. ...Read more
