In brief: Yes

Epididymitis, which is inflammation of the epididymis, can result in a firmer enlargement of the area just behind the testicle.
The area is also usually tender to the touch. It is important to get your urine tested to make sure that you do not have a urinary tract infection that is not contributing to the inflammation. An ultrasound may also be done to ensure that there is no mass present.
