Is the head of the epididymis supposed to feel harder than the other parts?

In brief: Epididymis

The epididymis is the confluence of sperm tubes at the base of the testicle.
It should not be hard or tender. If you have had a vasectomy, you will often feel a firm knot in the cord up higher, however.
