In brief: See MD
It could be an infection/inflamation like epididymitis, orchitis or testicular tosion, hernia, etc.
You should see your md and have proper evaluation that will include an ultrasound to your testicle. Most likely, this has nothing to do with your prostate cancer history in your father.

In brief: Testicular lump
You may have a sebaceous cyst or infection on the scrotum. This sounds completely unrelated to prostate cancer.
Go see your doctor.

In brief: Not prostate ca
Prostate cancer develops inside and locally around the prostate.
The prostate is located on the back of the bladder and in front of the rectum. That is why a prostate exam is done by rectal exam or rectal ultrasound which allows easy palliation and visualization of the gland. The testicles are not anatomically very close. A testicular lump needs md eval to see if its solid or cystic. B9 or malig.

In brief: Get exam
Any new finding noted on self exam should be reported to your physician and examination should be performed in the office.
This has no relation to your risk of prostate cancer however.
