Get examined: Most of the time new lumps are benign things, but you need to rule out the possibility of testicular cancer. A doctor can many times by just physical exam make a diagnosis.

It is better to be safe than sorry. ...Read more

See answer: Though it is not possible from your description or without a physical exam to determine the diagnosis and nature of your "lump", any testicular mass or "lump" (especially between the ages of 15-49) should be evaluated by a physician to rule out the possibility of testicular cancer. There are a variety of benign lesions/masses that can arise within the scrotum that can generally be dx'ed by exam. ...Read more

This is a great lesson for guys to check testicles! ...Read more
