Small Slightly Painful Lump at Top of Testicle

About yesterday my left testicle started being more sensitive to pressure, the way it feels after being hit, but I don't remember any serious injury. It was and still is only sensitive near the top. Then today, I felt a small lump at the top of the testicle, and felt the most severe pain when I pushed on it. It is a very small bump, almost like a pimple. The testicle isn't swollen or raised, the only symptom is this painful pimple-like bump. It's near where I believe the base of the epididymus is. I did some research, and the closest things I could find are epididymals cysts or cancer. I'm wondering if anyone has any more information on what this might be.

Hello,
From the symptom it looks like an infected hair follicle or boil. Please keep the area clean and apply some topical antiseptics. Also wear loose-fitting cotton clothing and use an antibacterial soap or mild soap like dove. Avoid any kind of cosmetics. Topical antibiotics such as mupirocin or neomycin containing ointment are also useful. In case the symptoms persist then oral antibiotics may be needed. Please consult a dermatologist in that case. Also then get the possibility of epididymal cyst(although less likely) ruled out. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
