I'm male 17 why has 1 of my testicle grown pea sized?

Here are some. ..: Either age of 17 or 47, a pea-sized testicle could result from congenital (related with undescended testicle with orchiopexy), post-mumps orchitis since childhood, inadvertent severing testicular artery during inguinal hernia repair or varicocele correction, etc. So, a detailed Hx may help track down the cause for severely shrunk testis. ...Read more

Get evaluated - now.: Any new lump on the testicle must be taken seriously. Testicular cancer can occur in young men. His doctor will likely order an ultrasound evaluation. If it is a cancer, it is likely to be highly treatable - so long as one acts quickly to get evaluation and treatment. Of course, there are many less concerning possibilities; my job is to be on the look-out for worst case scenarios. Lgromkomd. ...Read more

Lumps in Scrotum: This is very common reason men come in to be seen. First, testicular cancer is found in younger men. After about age 32 you are not at risk of this anymore. Second, the most common reason for lumps in the scrotum are scar tissues from injuries while growing up. These scars often called varicoceles are at risk for occasional pain if they get irritated and swell. ...Read more

Is it normal to have a lump on ur testicle where the tube is that's the size of a chic pea and its only on one of them?

See your MD: You need to see your doctor or a urologist for a physical exam and possible testicular ultrasound. What you are describing sounds like a spermatocele and these are benign, but you need to see a doctor to make sure. Testicular cancer is the most common solid cancer in your age group, although it is rare and very treatable. ...Read more

Testicular Exam: You need to have a physician examine your testes. Young men aged 15-35 are at highest risk for testicular cancer. That said it is still rare. It is likely a one of a few lesions: epididymal cyst/spermatocele, appendix testis, or some scrotal cutaneous lesion (like an epidermal inclusion cyst among others). It is likely benign, but the slight risk of malignancy behooves you to have it checked. ...Read more

Testis: Any lump on the testicle itself should be evaluated by a urologist. On the other hand, lumps above the testis, arising from the epididymis, are very common and are simple cysts. Get an exam to be certain. You are within the age group for testiicular cancer. ...Read more

Right side, supraclavicular area, two less than pea sized nodes present. Mobile, not rock hard, present for months, no growth. No symptoms. Concern?

Get them checked: Your (excellent) description of the lesions and their location lead me to believe these are lymph nodes. The anterior cervical (front neck) chain of nodes terminate just above the clavicles. They may be scarred nodes from an old infection; however, it's best to get them checked to rule out something more serious (lymphadenitis, malignancy, etc.). Good luck! ...Read more
