In brief: Bag of worms

If it feels like a bag of worms, it is probably a varicocele as dr. Rao said.
Almost always on the left side, they are usually not a problem unless you have pain or there are infertility concerns. It is worth having your doctor check it out if you have concerns.

In brief: By examination

It is called vericocele, usually harmless, if there is fertility problem surgery may be needed.
