In brief: It's easy
Palpate your testes / "testicles".
Get familiar with the contents of your scrotum, finding the epididymis and spermatic cord and the plexus of veins. Any other mass on the testis needs to be checked. Most of us men handle ourselves often enough so that we need not plan special times! that's a good thing.

They are probably benign sebaceous type cysts. They can easily be removed if they are bothering you or a partner

In brief: Testes cancer
If a doctor thinks you have a mass in the testes you will get a scrotal ultrasound.
...If a mass is identified surgery is likely.
