Hi there,
since yesterday I noticed that there was a small pea-sized lump on what I think is the head of the Epididymis of the left testicle based on what I have read on the internet (I could be touching something else but I am not completely sure). I do not have and cannot remember having had anypain in my groin area and pressing gently onthe lump does not make it painful either. However, I noticed that the lump is slightly bigger and harder that the head of the Epididymis on my right testicle.
Would anyone have any idea on what it might be? There are no other lumps anywhere else on the actual testicules.
thanks a lot for your answers.

I am experiencing the same thing on my left testicle only mine has been accompanied by on and off pain. I saw a doctor about it and he thought it was an infection of the epididymis and gave me antibiotics for it. They haven't really been working, but it is probably still probably either an infection or an STD.

Hi there,

I've had the same thing in my right testicle for almost ten years now. No pain. I saw a urologist and he described it as some sort of cyst but nothing to be concerned about, and that it wouldn't affect fertility. Recently my epididymuis has been swelling on the same side causing some discomfort. Antibiotics lots of water, and no coffee has helped reduce the swelling.

I'm a 33 year old white guy. I have the exact same thing that I just noticed on my right testicle. It doesn't appear to be on the testi but in the epyd.. I have a similar feature on my left side, but about 1/10th the size. Am going to have it checked during in my yearly physical next week.

Yea I've got one of these too, and while it is a little tender, its been around for a couple years now. And it's weird because the tenderness is an on and off sort of thing. Wonder what it is

Damn, seems like everyone has this, I dont think it's anything to worry about as it seems pretty common.

I have this aswell, except on both.
On my right testicle it's not ON the testicle but kinda floats around one area, though it's still attached to my testicle. I can put my finger in between it and the testicle. On the other one it's attached and small and tub shape.

I've had both for a few years, but I think I'm still going to see a doctor about it. Sure, these people's testimonies as assuring, but until I know for sure I'm going to play it safe. I rather not die, I have things I plan on doing. I suggest anyone else who just researched this on google to do the same.

I have had one of these for the past 20 years or so. It is on the right side, on the top of the testicle, right next to the head of the epididmys. Size of a pea but changes, bigger sometimes, smaller others.

I went to a Dr. when I first found it and he gave me a scrotal sonogram. He said it is a fluid filled cyst, an "Epididimyl Cyst". He said it's nothing to worry about. 3 years ago I had a vasectomy, I mentioned it to the dr (different dr than checked me out 20 years ago.) He checked me out said it was fine. I think the size change is because of fluid(sperm)building up and then draining off.

Sometimes if I get a weird ache in my nuts, if it goes on for more than a day I take a HOT bath and give them a long soak. That clears any issue up.

You guys should never be afraid to seek the help of a Dr. It will ease your mind and it's good for you. Taking care of yourself is the ultimate expression of wellness :-) Be Well !

im 15 years old and have experienced a similar lump on my epididymis on the top of my right testicle.
im going to see a doctor tomorrow, but from what ive read so far is that in most cases, this is just a simple cyst that nearly all guys have. if it starts to grow or start to be painful, then definately go to the doctor. in cases with sudden pain and inflamed tubes, then it is most likely epididymitis, which is just an infection caused by the common bacteria e. coli. it can also be caused by stds such as chlamydia and gonorrhea, but is less likely. it can also be a result of a urinary tract infection and poor sanitation in the groin area.

I'm no doctor, but i do have the same thing you all describe, though its two of them on the right side.
My doctor checked it and said "It's just a normal ductal structure". I wasn't quite sure what he meant. But after a little wikipedia research it may or may not be this:

What do you all think?

i have the same thing. in the right testicle on top or head of the epididmys. i saw a doctor and perform an ultra sound. at first he didnt not see anything because he is focused in the testicle it self. he check the epidimys he found the pea like. sometimes its soft and sometimes its hard when your game. doctor said it was a scar to your epididmys a calcified somthing.. its nothing to worry about. doctor says.
