What percentage of solid testicle lumps are cancer?

In brief: Varies

Some men who start checking discover their epididymis or appendix of the testis and mistake it for a possible cancer -- it's good they're checking.
The percentage of testicular solid masses not related to trauma that are malignant is quite high, and for each individual mass, it's either 0% or 100%. Best have any new mass examined.
