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 more

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

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 more

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

Get ultrasound: Most likely cause at your age probably would be a hydrocele. Other less cause could be an orchitis(inflammation). Testicular rumors are almost unheard of at your age. Best way to diagnose what is going in is to get a testicular ultrasound. ...Read more
