In brief: Epidydmal cyst

Your friend should see his doctor for an exam and a testicular ultrasound to further investigate this "tiny ball".
It is likely to be a cyst on the epididymis or a cyst on the testicle. However, testicular tumors can also feel like a tiny ball on the testicle so he definitely needs a testicular ultrasound to rule out a tumor.

In brief: He should get seen

Even the very round-like-a-ball masses, which tend to be adenomatoid tumors, need to be checked by a competent physician.
We don't want to miss cancer.
