Lump testicle: Hello ~ please NEVER use abbreviations. I have no idea what TC means. If it's a solid tumor, it would be in the testicle and has a very HIGH chance of being cancer (a seminoma, teratoma etc. If its in the CORD, and the epididymis is the CORD there is about ZERO chance of being cancer and MOST likely is an epididymal cyst. You leave it. But make SURE of the location. CORD or TESTIS. Big difference. ...Read more

Got u/s done and nurse said no bloodflow in lump on top of right testicle on epididymis most likely cyst or something else? Is no bloodflow good?

In this case yes.: US is used to help determine if a mass is a cancer or something less concerning. Cancer begins initially when cells stop communicating with their neighbors and start to grow faster than the rest. Before developing into a cancer the growing mass must be able to recruit blood vessels otherwise it cannot progress. Regular, smooth shape, freely mobile are all good signs if present. ...Read more

Cyst likely: Cysts contain watery fluid & no blood vessels thus no blood flow. Lining of cyst is very thin & has blood vessels & flow but flow insufficient 2B detected by U/S. Suggest consult your "anxiety" Dr. if it's not adequately controlled. Good Luck. ...Read more

Ultrasound: To be sure, an ultrasound of the testicles would be a good idea. This could easily be just the epididymis. But if it is tender, I would suggest an ultrasound. ...Read more

No pains in any other area But a small lump on the top of the testicle?

No pains in any other area But a small lump on the top of the testicle?

Watch and wait: What you described does not seem to be a cause for concern. You may watch and wait. If the lump doubles in size, becomes irregular, shape or color, bleeds, or ulcerates, see a doctor.
For good health — Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex, if you have sex. ...Read more

Sensitive testicles: There is no medical condition or concern with symptoms only when you touch something on your body and at no other time. Usually when someone tells a doctor something hurts when I do "this" the doctor advises the patient to stop doing "that". Sounds like the next time you see your doctor you should mention this. ...Read more

I know I have a varciocele, and I also have a lump in the top of my testicle. Could this be a spermatocele that has been caused by the varciocele?

Here are some...: Varicocele is varicose veins of pampiniform venous plexus of spermatic vein, which present in some 15% of men with 90% of them on left side and 10% on both sides; spermattocele is cyst(s) of epididymides, which contain light milk-colored fluid with sperms, usually at the head of epididymides. So, both are unrelated in origin and structure. More? Ask doc, preferably urologist. Best wish... ...Read more

USUALLY, where do cancerous lumps on testes form? Middle, bottom, top? Inside testicle?

USUALLY, where do cancerous lumps on testes form? Middle, bottom, top? Inside testicle?

Anyone of them: Growth from a tumor can affect any part of the testicle. So you should have a general feel of the size of your testicles and go around all sides looking for either a localized bump(tumor) of diffuse/general enlargement of over 1.5-2 inches which is progressively getting bigger. Then you should get concerned and check it out with your doctor ...Read more

I have mild pain on the top of my right testicle but no lumps, or abnormalities from ultrasound results. This has been happening for 2 months. Answer?

Orhalgia: Scrotal pain can be from many things. If the epididymi (above and below testes) are tender to touch, likely epididymitis. If nothing in scrotum is tender, likely varicocele. Also, may be a hernia. See a urologist for examination and diagnosis. ...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 you're 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

I feel a tiny lump on top of my right testicle near the spermatic cord, its like hard grain rice, but it doesn't occur on the left one! Is that normal

Could simply: Be a small spermatocele. If it has been there a long time without enlarging or with any symptoms it is likely benign, but you might want to have your doctor check for you. However, if it is enlarging you definitely need to see your doctor. ...Read more

I have a lump on the top of my testicle that I can move around but it still feels sorta connected to the testicle. Is this a cyst or cancer?

Spermatocele?: You are likely describing something called a spermatocele. This is a cyst at the head of the epididymis containing sperm. Unless they are causing symptoms they are left alone. They do not interfere with fertility. Cancer will be a hard area felt on the testicle. Best to see a physician to be sure it's a spermatocele. ...Read more

I have a lump on the top of my right testicle. It's been there for ~13 years with no pain or discomfort. Could this be cancer? What should I do?

Probably not BUT!: Why wait so long? Get it examined by your urologist.! By description, it is most likely not a cancerous process. This will depend on your age, and other factors. You may be describing a cyst on the cord, or in the epididymus or a benign structure. It can be simply anatomic confusion. My best advice is to get it checked. Why take the chance. You may need an ultrasound test to help confirm. ...Read more

I have had a small hard lump attached to the top of my right testicle for 17 years (not the epidymis).  It has not really grown — could it be cancer?

Not likely related: There are several non-cancerous causes of lumps in and near the testicle. If it has been there for a long time, it is not likely cancer. A urologist specializes in these types of problems, and should be able to determine the cause of the lump. ...Read more

I have a small lump under the top portions of the epididymis on the testicle. It is present on both but the right one has a small balloon covering.

Here are some...: Glad the concerned spots are in eipididymides, commonly seen, and benign — not cancer. The surest way to handle them is do nothing if not incurring unbearable mental and physical pain and anguish because surgical removal leaves the affected area with a scar and potentially affecting sperm transportation leading to infertility.
