    Hey, I know exactly what you are going through now. I am going to urologist on tuesday for a soft mass on my left testicle which is filled with fluid. it's very large compared to my right testicle and im worried sick!!
    Take my advice, go to the doc, you are good enough to have noticed it, a girl I was with pointed it out as abnormal to me. I had a look and it looked abnormal, so I went to a doc straight away and im going tuesday to a urologist. Please man, go to a doctor coz you do need to get this sorted out straight away!! Im only 21 man, i've read this has happened in 18, 22 and 23 year olds. We fill in the gaps there, so go ASAP. Trust me!

      What I think is that you should schedule a doctors visit. Soft tissue growth won't be testiclular cancer but it should still be checked. Follow this link to learn how to do a proper self exam.

        The exams just scare me, I cant tell soft tissue from hard because I keep wanting to it be normal. the skin over my testicles are so tight it makes it feel hard but when i push its a bit more spongy. im very confused

          Yes the results from the exam can be frightening but imagine the relief when they tell you you're ok. Most guys who visit here spend weeks making themselves sick over what they think is tc and then 20 minuets with the doctor and they can sleep like babies. Get checked and the sooner the better, why stress over what could be nothing.

            Please do as Dadmo has said and go to the doctors ASAP.. some guys have posted for 3-6 weeks before making an appiontment ..I get to the piont sometimes that if the procrastinators lived close enough to me I would drag then to the doctors by there necks just so they would stop crying like babies about going to the doctors and stop mentally torturing themselves-especially when in 10 minutes they find out that they are fine... I'm hoping this will not be another case like that.... Best of luck guys!!!!!
