There's a moveable lump under my left testicle I'm afraid is it cancer? I can move it around

On skin?: Is the "lump" below your testicle but on the skin? If so, it is probably a sebaceous cyst.Other "lumps"inside the scrotum are usually not below the testis. For your peace of mind have it checked by a doctor. Testicular cancer is not a movable lump below the testis. Relax. Take care.

Testicles (Definition)

The testicles are the two oval male gonads, or reproductive glands, located in the scrotum. The seminiferous tubules of the testis are the site of spermatogenesis and its leydig cells secrete testosterone. The term testicles is synonymous with testes or gonads. The singular form is ...Read more

Hi I have a lump on my left testicle what should I do?

Hi I have a lump on my left testicle what should I do?

See a doctor ASAP!: Testicular cancer is one of the few cancers that can happen to young men. There are also many benign things that it could be, that are much more likely, but since that one little cancer diagnosis is something that needs to be ruled out right away, please see your doc asap! The good news is, even if it is cancer, you will have caught it early. This is a great lesson for guys to check testicles!

I have a hard lump close to or attached to my left testicle?

I have a hard lump close to or attached to my left testicle?

See your doctor: Testicular lumps can be cancer or benign. You don't want to take a chance of misdiagnosing yourself. Testicular cancer can be extremely aggressive so don't delay. Go see your doctor for a thorough exam. S/he may order an ultrasound to determine if you have a mass inside the testicle, but hopefully it is something benign such as a cyst or varicocele (dilated blood vessels). Good luck!

Consult urologist: Testis tumor must always be excluded if you have a hard lump on your testis. Soft lumps are more likely to be cysts of the epididymis. Scrotal ultrasound will provide the answer. Good luck.

Testis pain: Most cases of pain in the testicle will resolve on their own. I would see your primary care doctor to make sure you don't have an infection first. A scrotal ultrasound may also be helpful. I would advise that if your symptoms persist longer than three months, you should probably see an urologist.

I was in the shower, and for a while now I've noticed this lump on my left testicle, there is no pain at all and it feels "squishy"?

Testis mass: Based on your description, it sounds like you may be feeling a normal part of the anatomy, such as the epididymis. Testicular cancer is usually hard and not squishy. However, at your age, if there is any question then you should have it checked by a urologist.

I have a lump on my left testicle and it moves...............is it cancerous?

Lump: Hi. If the lump moves relative to the testicle, it's not likely to be cancer. But testicles move. If the lump moves WITH the testicle (i.e., is fixed to and part of the testicle), it should be biopsied. See your doctor. Good on you for doing testicular self-examination!

Could be: Appendix testis, varicocele, epididymal cyst, or malignancy. It would be best to contact your doctor for an exam and if he/she feels it necessary, a testicular ultrasound which identifies with ease.

Testicles: Testicles do have nerve fibers and pain in the testicle can be caused by a variety of conditions such trauma, infection, or tumors. It is important to seek an evaluation with a urologist to determine the cause of the pain.

Hard lump on the bottom of the left testicle with a feel of worms as well, is this serious? Sometimes It can be very sensitive.

Varicocele: Hi, the "worms" feeling is typical of varicocele which is veins. Varicocele is not serious but needs to be checked bc it may become a factor in infertility.I suggest you see a urologist.

Small pressure on left testicle causes pain, same amount of pressure on right and no pain. Should I be worried? Also I have a small lump on left.

Get examined: ASAP. You will also need a testicle ultrasound to rule out a cyst v. testicle mass. Since you are a young male adult, I suggest immediate evaluation- call for an appointment today.

Have a soft lump on right testicle only, not on left one, quite high up, bean sized. Hurts a bit to touch, and present when lying down, what is it?

Varicosity: It sounds like a varicosity which is a little clot in one the cluster of veins associated with the testis. Application of warm moist heat may help it dissolve. If it persists see your dr.

I recently found a firm, smooth lump above my left testicle. It moves around freely but it is connected though a cord to the epidydimis or testicle.

Need to see your DR: It could be a simple non malignant spermatocele but need confirmation must see your doctor will order a sonogram and tell you as you are a minor you have to go with parent or guardian
