Could you tell me if the small lump on my testicle is cancerous, can it be easily removed?

Yes: If cancerous can easily be removed. Entire testicle may well need to be removed if it is cancer. You could always have a testicular prosthesis to replace a removed testis if cosmetic appearance of 2 testes is important. Read more

I have a small lump in side my ball sack but it's not attached to my testicle but it isn't painful I'm worried please let me know what it is thank?

Need eval: Without examining your scrotum and testicles (ball sack and balls), it is impossible to tell you what you may have. Testicular lumps or abnormal lumps in the scrotum need to be evaluated as you want to make sure they are not something serious. Get eval of the area, which may or may not include a testicular/scrotal ultrasound. Best wishes. Read more

I have a small lump under the top portions of the epididymis on the testicle. It is present on both but the right one has a small balloon covering.

I have a small lump under the top portions of the epididymis on the testicle. It is present on both but the right one has a small balloon covering.

Here are some...: Glad the concerned spots are in eipididymides, commonly seen, and benign - not cancer. The surest way to handle them is do nothing if not incurring unbearable mental and physical pain and anguish because surgical removal leaves the affected area with a scar and potentially affecting sperm transportation leading to infertility.

I have a small lump above right ball on pubes. Doesn't seem to connect to testicles at all. Feels hard like a fatty deposit. Could it be a tumor or ca?

I have a small lump above right ball on pubes. Doesn't seem to connect to testicles at all. Feels hard like a fatty deposit. Could it be a tumor or ca?

Not Ca: A small lump above the testis essentially refers to a process in the spermatic cord high in the scrotum. May be a small clot in the spermatic vein or adjacent structure. In rare instances a malignancy develops in the distal spermatic cord presenting as a growing mass in the upper scrotum. If the lump you feel starts growing, have it checked by urologist. Read more

I am 27 years old and have a small lump attached to my right testicle should I be worried? I get a sharp pain in my penis, and a dull ache in my testi

Recommend assessment: You should have a physical exam. While a very small lump where anatomic attachments are on the testicles are normal, anything that has changed, is painful, or non-symmetric from other testes should be checked out. It may be nothing, but catching scary issues like testicular cancer early holds the best prognosis. Best of luck and hope every thing works out well! Read more

No pains in any other area But a small lump on the top of the testicle?

No pains in any other area But a small lump on the top of the testicle?

Watch and wait: What you described does not seem to be a cause for concern. You may watch and wait. If the lump doubles in size, becomes irregular in size, shape or color, bleeds, or ulcerates, see a doctor.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. 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, if you have sex. Read more

I have a small but painful lump a little above my right testicle. Its been there for 2 weeks now.

PreserveFamilyJewels: Time for a checkup. There's a small structure up there called the appendix testis (yes, appendix testis) that can get clogged, which doesn't mean much but should be verified just to make sure it isn't something more serious, especially at your age. It hasn't been emphasized enough that men in their teens and twenties check their testes for masses. I'd suggest getting your girlfriend to do it...Fun Read more

I have a small, painless lump that is on the surface of the front of my testicle, what is this lump?

Needs to be checked: Most likely head of or small cyst of epididymis if it isn't hard. Scrotal pearl or previously twisted appendix testis or appendix epididymis if hard. All are benign. Although very rare at your age, any hard painless lump of testicle is cancer unless proven otherwise. Hence, need to have it checked by simple examination &/or scrotal ultrasound. Read more
