Exam needed: A doctor needs to examine you. A common cause for what you describe is a fludi filled sac called a spermatocele, although that is rarely seen at your age. You are 18 so you may be feeling normal anatomy too such as the head of the epididymis. ...Read more

How do I know if I have a lump in my testicle and how does it feel?

How do I know if I have a lump in my testicle and how does it feel?

Examining Testicles: Just like women are taught to examine their breasts, young men are taught to examine their testicles. Testicles are often shaped like almonds. One will always be larger than the other. The texture of the testicle should be smooth and without lumps or bumps. Now the tubing that leads to the prostate gland and the blood vessels are often very lumpy but should not hurt to light touch. ...Read more

I noticed a lump in my testicle. Ultrasound and dr said it was a cyst. They also noticed varicocele. What causes this? Will i be able to have kids?

Benign conditions: I doubt that these two conditions will affect your fertility. So do not worry about them except if you have a problem in having kids once you are ready to have them. ...Read more

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 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

I have a hard white lump on my testicle for years now. It doesn't usually cause me pain but recently popped and now is starting to. Is this bad?

Here are some ...: What you described is not enough to know if the hard lump is in the scrotal wall or really inside the scrotum because many laypersons tend to describe a lump in the scrotal wall as in the testicle. If in scrotal wall, such hard lump is most likely a sebaceous cyst which may develop superimposed infection like a boil. If inside the sac, it requires a direct look and palpation to ... + / - US for Dx ...Read more
