Most likely a cyst on the top your testicle due to an infection on the bottom of the epidimys. I'm like 90% it is Epididimitis. I went to the doctor and he straight away said that I had that, then I got an ultrasound and I guess I am just waiting for whatever reason cause the doctor hasn't told me anything else.

Hi guys I'm 15 years old and I've noticed a pea sized lump on the left side of my sack, it doesn't hurt and is soft. Had it for a while now and I pretty scared coz I've been thinking bout cancer alot ATM and had panic attacks coz of it and then went to the doctors, he checked me out apart from my sack. And said I'm healthy and ok. But I don't wanna go to a doctor about it please help!

I have the same thing I felt it 3 years ago when I was 19 there was no pain but now there is and it seems to be growing the last two months and the other day I felt my other testicle and found the se thing on the top but smaller. I went to the doctor all he did was touch my testicle not the top part and gived me DOXYCLINE HYCLATE and I found out that's for chlamydia but I don't have any of the symptoms for chlamydia.

I have the same lump above the epididymis. I was concerned but after reading the comments I feel more reassured. I too think it's a cyst. I have assisted in several operations in that area and a cyst is one viable possibility. I will get a check up when I can, though, just to be sure.

well I got the same thing right testical top floats around about. 1 cm side to side I've been to A doctor and he said its a cyst but if I were you get another doctors approval and it seems. Common that people have them on both or left or right.

I've got the same !!:( a kind of lump on top of my testicule, and it doesn't hurt when I press it. However when I'm walking and I'm starting to apply pressure on my testicule with my leg then it does really really really hurt! Got a ultrasound scan tomorrow morning, fingers crossed, plus I'm flying on Sunday in a country where meteorites fall...

I have had the same thing for many years on and off.

I went for an ultrasound some years ago and was told it was calcification but nothing to worry about. No treatment however, which is really annoying as when it comes on it hurts a fair bit.

Same thing here, felt pain in my right testicle for one day, then was going to the bathroom and felt this pea-sized lump out of the blue and thought I was a goner. Nervously went to the doctor right away the next day. Mine feels like it's right where the head of the epidydimus should be but also feels like it's attached to the testicle, so I was a little worried it might be a tumor. But the doctor promised me it was epidydimitis and he prescriped an antibiotic. I've been taking it for about five days but the size of the lump hasn't changed. I have no idea how long it will take to go away, if at all. No clue what the cause was, just came out of the blue. I've been second-guessing the doctor in my head and doing so much self-examination I just cause more pain for myself, but I realize I'm probably worrying for nothing and I'll be patient and follow up when these meds run out. It's right where epidydimitis should be and causes a dull ache, so it seems that's the right diagnosis.

Gentlemen, I assure you, go see an oncologist immediately. This is normal, but unfortunately also cancerous. It is typically found in white males aged 20-35 in its infancy. Avoid caffeine and attempting over stimulus. (Don't mess with it). Go see a doctor and refuse no less than blood work as a sonogram is inconclusive.

Hey guys in 14 years old and when I was 13 I found a lump on my left testicle and I shat bricks. I eventually forgot about it. Until a couple of days ago. I found it again. I check it like evey night and sometimes I canny find it but now all I can feel is my epididymis but is much larger than my right one. It doesn't hurt but ever since I have started checking it I get a null pain which I never got before. Should I tell my parents or go to these people in my school or just see a doctor. I have seen alot of people with this but I am still really scared.
