calcified mass in testicle
My 24 yearr old son went to the ER because he discovered a lump/mass in his right upper testicle.  He was experiencing some pain in that area and did a sefl exam. The ER doctor did. a sonogram and discovered the testicle mass.  My son states the mass is located in the upper right testicle. It feels like a hard lump. He is having a difficult time getting an appt. with a urologist. What could this lump be and does it need urgent care?

Hi,

Are there other symjptoms present? A painful testicle mass in one or both testicles may be due to epididymitis, infection of the scrotal sac, orchitis (testicular infection), testicular torsion, spermatocele (a cyst-like mass within the scrotum that contains fluid and dead sperm cells) or varicocele (a varicose vein along the spermatic cord).  A testicular lump that does not hurt may be a sign of cancer. Most cases of testicular cancer occur when men are between ages 15 and 40, although it can happen at older or younger ages. A complete physical examination is important as well as some diagnostic tests to help with the diagnosis.

Take care and regards.
