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

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

What could a lump on the right testicle mean?

What could a lump on the right testicle mean?

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

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 noticed a hard lump on my testicle.  what should I do?

I noticed a hard lump on my testicle.  what should I do?

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 more

One will always be larger than the other. The texture of the testicle should be smooth and without lumps or bumps.
