I am a 64 yr old healthy male. I have just discovered a hard nodule like item on the lower portion of my left tisticle. I will get it checked out in the next day or two. Until then, should I limit any kind of physical activity such as walking, golfing, or lite jogging, and should I limit sexual activity with my wife? W.
Since it is a small pea size lump, you can resume your regular activities such as golfing, light jogging, walking and even sex. The small lump could be a minute varicocele (an abnormal enlargement of the veins draining testicles), hernia, hydrocele (clear fluid accumulated in the tunica vaginalis layer), and spermatocele (retention cyst of the head of the epididymis) or cancer. Do discuss this with your doctor and get yourself examined. Take care!
