  • very small lump, aches a little

    hi, im 14

    i only recently found a very small lump (about 2mm in diameter) on the top of my left testicle. it aches when i feel or touch it, it also aches after i touch it as well (like when someone kicks you in the groin). also its rather hard to find

    i really want to know what this is before telling my dad.

    Don't think that's going to be possible. Chances are it's nothing to worry about, but I'd tell you dad.

      oh, thats good, it also seems to be growing, or that could be just my imagination

      also, can u get a hernia in your testicles, and if so how do you identify it, and what else could a soft large mass in my scrotum be.

        Hello, titanic!

        "A hernia is a condition in which part of the intestine bulges through a weak area in muscles in the abdomen."

        See this page to read about causes of testicle lumps.

          thanks for that scott, i think the soft lump is a Varicocele, am i right in thinking that it is harmless. could the lump on my testicle be a Spermatocele.

            here is the soft lump

            i think ist a varicoele because when i lie down it goes away and comes back when i stand up, im so relived. btw what could the small lump be.

            could it possibly be a zit or pimple

              Hey, I've had a similar experience this week and wanted to let you know how it came out. I've had a small, hard, bb sized lump on the top of my left testicle for as long as I can remember, recently there is a smaller one to it's left, and a similar mass on my right testicle. I'm right smack dab in the risk group, white, under 30, and have an undescended testicle (repaired 20 years ago, but not fully developed due to surgery). I had my US Tuesday and have been antsy all week. Well, the doc called today and said there is nothing to be concerned about! If you have any doubts, and peace of mind is wonderful, get the US done. It literally takes 5 minutes and is the best way to determine what, if anything, is wrong. Trust me, I tried to talk myself out of it plenty of times. Just know that all hard masses aren't necessarily cancer, but should be checked out. Hopefully this eases your mind. Let us know what's going on with it. Good Luck!
