Im nearly 16 and found a small hard lump on my testicle, about the size of a BB. If i push my testicle against the scrotum it is visible and appears white. It just feels like a spot and im just wondering what it is.
Hi Dave, you need to have your scrotum and testicles examined by a urololgist. He or she will most likely perform an ultrasound of the scrotum to determine what this lump may be. Possibilities include a small blood clot (thrombophlebitis), varicocele (engorged veins coming from the testes), or, rarely, cancer of the testicle. You need to see a urologist to determine what condition you have.
