  • Spot-like-lump

    I am 17 and I have just recently found a small lump.
    I was getting some pain in my right testicle over the weekend but put it down to catching myself on my bike a few days earlier (I regularly cycle and the seat is slightly loose) so I thought nothing of it.
    The pain died down considerable but two nights ago I was checking myself out and found a small lump (it feels like a spot does on my face, rather than a smooth lump - if that means anything). It is not attached to the actual testicle, but it is just above it on the tube.
    There is rarely any pain now unless I actual press the lump.

    Should I be worried about this?
    Do I need to call my local doctor or what?

    Thank you.

    sounds as though its not tc. probably a cyst of some kind. tc tumors would be attached or inside the testical. if pain is still there i would see doctor!

      I just found out my Dad had a cyst there when he was my age.
      Is this sort of thing hereditary?
      I have made an appointment anyway.
