My husband let me no last week he found a large lump on the back of his left testicle and also feels a smaller one forming next to it. What is it?
See your doctor: Your doctor can perform an exam and tell you what is normal and not normal. You should learn how to do self testicular exams every month. What you are feeling is likely your epididymis (on both sides) which is where sperm is stored on its way from the testicle to the vas deferens and finally out the urethra. The only person who can confirm this is your doctor. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
So i have a lump slightly over my left testicle. I isn't that big, and is most noticable when I'm standing up. I doesn't hurt anything. And when I touch it, it feels like a bag of strings, is it dangerous?
The "bag of strings": comment suggests what you are feeling, I believe. The epididymis is a coiled tube at the back of the testicle that stores and carries sperm. Depending on location and position, it can be felt. It can become infected, including by sexually transmitted infections, when it is then swollen and tender. From your description, I believe you are feeling a normal structure. Stay well:) ...Read more

I have a bean sized lump on the top of my testicle. It's attached but can tell it's a seperate lump. I'm 16 and idk if it's a big cyst or somethin els?
Scrotal lump: What your describing is likely a cystic structure within the epididymis- the structure behind the traits. It is called a spermatocelectomy or epididymal cyst. It is benign and nothing of concern. You should be evaluated by your medical doctor or a urologist for verification. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Varicocele: This could be a varicocele. Go in and get formally checked out by your physician or a urologist to ensure no other problems. If sudden/severe pain, then immediate evaluation is needed to ensure the testicle is not twisted and not getting a good blood supply.

My testicles are larger than normal and fill my palm. No pain but at a point on the upper right lobe there is a hard lump. Pl advice?
No rush, but ask: I'm assuming you don't have bilateral hydroceles. Testicular size is quite variable in size, and even vary from man to man over the course of years even if not taking medications. If they've always been quite large, you may have a weak dose of fragile x. A truly hard round lump in the epididymus is usually a benign adenomatous tumor. Your physician can sort this out next visit. ...Read more
Husband has had sore testicles for one month. Not sharp pain just very sore. On self examination one is larger. No lumps. What could this be?
Lump in the Scrotum: Hi this common finding would be evaluated based upon other symptoms. Given your age, the lump is very unlikely to represent cancer. The most common issue is a scarring of the tubing in the scrotum often called a hydrocele or varicocele. Do you have pain? Swelling? Is the scrotum hot to touch? Do you feel feverish? Do you have any urinary symptoms. If yes to these questions you should be seen. ...Read more
Here are some...: Without further detailed history of specifics, relevance, & sequence of events of all related symptoms, it is hard to tell what it may be. However, it is not that hard to sort the concern out correctly by following instructions in articles listed in http://www.formefirst.com/onDealSickness.html, although clinically, it may present the early phase of epididymitis if accompanying with pain... ...Read more

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
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 moreSee 2 more doctor answers
