    I have had this lump that is located on the side of my left testicle for at least 6 months now. The first time I felt it I got nervous real fast but the next morning I didn't think much of it and kind of just forgot about it (stupid). Well just today, after being hit in the area playing basketball, I had this soarness and decided to read up on TC and do a self examination. After the examination I found the lump once again, it was hard to find but it is just a little bigger than size of a pea. I put a little pressure on the lump and it was pretty painful and now my lower abdomen hurts, but I don't know if it is from just getting hit there or what. So I need some input here. Thanks.

    The best input you could get would be from a doctor. Schedule an appointment with your primary physician or an urologist, they'll be able to diagnose you a lot better than we can.

      I agree, go to your doctor. You will know what exactly is going on-- don't waste time, it has been long enough.

        I should also mention that in the 6 month's the lump has not grown any bigger. I do not know what that means but thought I should just throw that out there. Also I felt each testicle and beside the lump everything feels normal. All the help is greatly appreciated.

          Some types of cancer can grow rather slowly, but they're cancer nonetheless. However, it could be just a cyst and only your doctor will be able to tell you for sure. I wouldn't waste any more time, make an appointment and hopefully it will end up being nothing to worry about.
