If I touched a little lump inside my ball bag near my one of the testicle what could that be? Thanks
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 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

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.
