How do I know if I have a lump in my testicle and how does it feel?

Examining Testicles: Just like women are taught to examine their breasts, young men are taught to examine their testicles. Testicles are often shaped like almonds. One will always be larger than the other. The texture of the testicle should be smooth and without lumps or bumps. Now the tubing that leads to the prostate gland and the blood vessels are often very lumpy but should not hurt to light touch. ...Read more

I have a lump on my testicle and I have some questions?

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. For those times when things are unclear, simple imaging tests like ultrasound can help make a diagnosis. The first step, though, it for you to go see your doctor. Do not wait. It is better to be safe than sorry. ...Read more

I have a lump on my testicle, it just appeared, it sometimes burns and a lot of the time it itches. There are also many little craters around it.

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

See a urologist: You may have sustained a minor testicle rupture as a result of the injury. This could have led to a sperm granuloma which can be tender. It is worth your seeing a urologist and probably getting a scrotal ultrasound. All testicular lumps should be checked out in cast they are tumors because it might havr been there before the injury and bled as a result of the trauma. ...Read more

I have a lump on my left testicle and it moves...............is it cancerous?

Lump: Hi. If the lump moves relative to the testicle, it's not likely to be cancer. But testicles move. If the lump moves WITH the testicle (i.e., is fixed to and part of the testicle), it should be biopsied. See your doctor. Good on you for doing testicular self-examination! ...Read more

I have a lump on my right testicle! And I also have an undecsended testicle! The lump comes and goes. Is this cancerous? Please help I am terrified!

Cancer unlikely: From what you described varicocele is a likely explanation of the symptoms. Cancer is unlikely. It would be prudent to see a doctor to have a proper evaluation. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low fat milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex. ...Read more

I have a lump under neath my testicle my right nut i don't no if i hurt it win i was a sleep or win i was playing with my self it dose not hurt ?

See answer : If the lump is separate from the testicle, it most likely is a swollen epididymis, epididymal cyst or other benign lesion. If this is the case, then a period of observation with regular self-exam is reasonable. If the lump is coming from the testicle, then testicular tumor needs to be ruled out. If this is the case or unsure, see md or urologist. ...Read more

I have a lump above my right testicle i don't know what it is and also did an ultrasound they said its nothing , what is this ? Do I have to worry ?

I have a lump above my right testicle i don't know what it is and also did an ultrasound they said its nothing , what is this ? Do I have to worry ?

Don't worry...: Unfortunately, they should have told you what it is, rather than say "nothing." however, if the ultrasound was reported as negative, you shouldn't worry. It could be what is known as a hydrocele (a benign collection of fluid), but without the report i can't suppose. I would call and ask your referring physician what they reported that it was. I hope this helps. ...Read more
