  • Lump.

    For about 1 and a half months i have had a sort of hard lump, not like a rock. It is definetly movable and it feels like its on top of the epidydymis. I have no abnormal pains or anything, it only hurts if i squeeze it, it also hasnt grown since i discovered it.

    Any ideas? Hope it aint a tumor!

    Some questions tho, do most tumors grow, like can you define if it is growing?? Can cysts be hard??

    Cheers for all the help.

    From your description, it sounds as though it's more likely to be a cyst than cancer. It's still a good idea to let your doctor check it out.

      In my case the tumor was inside of the testicle, and in a three week period I did notice definite growth. I would say it probably grew by 25-40%, noticeable by touch.
