Multiple Lumps on testicles

Last week after exiting the hot tob I noticed a small bb sized lump on my right testicle. I called my gp an he felt the lump and refered me to a uroligist. The uroligist had trouble finding the lump put eventually did. He said It was a very small bump on the surface of my teste, Probally scar tissue,But he ordrerd an ultrasound for later that day. The results of the Ultrasound showed multiple 4 mm lumps on both of my testes. I Still can feel only one. The uroligist said this could be a sign of Limphoma and has scheduled me for a CT. I have no swollen glands nor am I able to feel any more than the one lump. I am 32 years old and in generraly good health. Any Ideas?? PS I dont have any other symptoms that I feel are pertinant

The ultrasound should be able to tell whether this is a more benign lesion - like a cyst, varicocele, hydrocele - or something more ominous like cancer.  

A negative CT would make lymphoma less likely.

Infection remains a possibility - tests to evaluate the urine, as well as a prostate exam should be considered.

If there continues to be confusion about the diagnosis, you can consider a biopsy - which would give a more definitive diagnosis.

This option can be discussed with your personal physician.

Followup with your personal physician is essential.
