Lump on testicle

My 14 yr old son came to me tonight and said he had just found a lump on his right testicle.  He was very frightened that it might be testicular cancer.  Noone in our family has had this and my son's testicles both dropped when he was a baby.  I checked the lump and it is about 1/2" in diameter, solid and is painful when touched.  We are calling the doctor tomorrow to get him in for a check-up but I was wondering if you have any insight into what this could be.  He had a complete physical this past summer and nothing was found.

Thank you.

Hi Sue.
Testicular cancer is common among the 15-35 years age group.  It usually presents as a painless testicular mass.  However, there are patients who complain of testicular pain or discomfort.  
Epididymitis, epididymal cyst, hydrocele, spermatocele are few conditions that can present with a testicular lump.
I agree with your decision to have him checked by his doctor.  A scrotal ultrasound may help in the diagnosis.
Good luck.
