In brief: Ultrasound, blood
Scrotal ultrasound is the initial test.
In addition a blood test for 2 tumor markers are also neccessary prior to any procedure to determine a baseline so that the blood test can be used as a monitoring system after defintive treatment.

In brief: See your doctor
Some primary physicians are comfortable starting the process but a referral to a urologist may be required first.
