    You really should tell your mom and have your doctor check it out. It's much more likely to be a cyst or something else relatively harmless than cancer, but don't take unnecessary risk. Lots of guys post here that they don't want to tell their parents, but they all feel much better after they do.

      You need to get this seen by a doctor. It sound's like a cyst or varicocele - but any scrotal lumps must be investigated by a doctor/urologist.

      Don't be scared to tell your mother about this. She will be understanding about the situation if you approuch it right. Say something along the lines of "Hey mom, i've found a little lump down below and want to get it checked out by the doctor..."

      If anything she will praise you for approuching something like this like an adult!

      Keep us posted and make sure you get it checked out just to be sure.
