  • odd bump?

    Ive got a bump on my testicle, its not shaped like a pea its shaped more like a grain of rice or a veign or something like a testicular ridge but a little harder then I would imagin a veign?

    Sorta like a testicular ridge, I got an ache in my testicles which im still not even sure what it was to this day about 3 months ago, we did an ultrasound and they found a couple of cysts but I never checked my testicles for bumps prior to this.

    But a couple nights ago I was checking and I found this ridge like bump its not very big, I dont beleive its the epydemititus because the epydemititus is VERY soft and only on 1 side, I have been tapping my testicle repeatedly to see if there was still pain in the testicle I beleive I may have caused a veign ON the testicle to swell up is this possible?

    Ive had lower back pain as well but it was on both sides and I beleive that is more mechanical issue related to my hips being wacked out then the testicle issue.

    Don't be too rough with the self exams. You wouldn't be the first who hurt a testicle by to much examination. I would call the urologist and mention the rice grain but don't worry about it. If you had an ultrasound 3 months ago my guess is you're ok today but don't risk it.
