    Since you say you've had them for a long time, and it sounds like both testicles feel the same, it's likely you're just feeling part of the epididymis. Check these self-examination instructions and feel free to ask more questions.

        My guess is that you don't have cancer but any lumps on the testicles should be checked by a urologist. It may be a bit weird talking to your parents about it but as a parent I can tell you they won't think your being silly and they won't ask to see or check the lumps themselves.
