I highly recommend that you have this part of your testicle that is concerning to you examined by your primary care doctor
. They will be able to determine whether this is just a normal part of your anatomy or whether it is something that needs to be worried about.
Most of the time, when someone feels a lump near their testicle, this ends up being a benign part of the anatomy in the scrotum. For example, many times what the person is feeling is the epididymis, which is the tube that comes off the back of the testicle and carries the sperm into the urethra. Also, you may feel the spermatic cord, which contains the blood vessels that feed the testicle.
However, occasionally, a lump in a testicle can be an early sign of testicular cancer, especially if one testicle seems different than the other. Your doctor will be able to examine your testicles closely. If there is any concern at all that this lump might represent testicular cancer, they will likely want to perform an ultrasound
of the testicle, which can often help clarify what is going on and help determine whether a biopsy
of the lump is needed.
Get in to see your doctor as soon as possible!
