Yesterday as I was being a good citizen and checking for any lumps or changes to my testicles, I discovered a spongy lump that seemed to be somewhat connected to the bottom/rear of my left testicle. I had epididymitis on my left testicle about 5 years ago and was prescribed an anti-inflammatory, but was also told by a family friend who is in the medical field that I may have just been a little "backed up and needed a release" to say it bluntly. So it had been a few weeks so I figured I'd see if that was the problem. Now this morning, not only is the lump still there, but the looser skin just below the head of my penis (circumcised) is very noticeably swollen, mostly on the left side, and a little on the right. It is not hard tissue, it hardly even feels like fluid. I will most likely be taking a trip to see my doctor (unless both go away before the end of the day), but what seems to be the issue here?
The swelling/lump of the testes is possibly spermatocoele and it needs to be surgically removed if it is causing discomfort. The swelling around the foreskin is likely due to balanoposthitis (inflammation of the glans (glands)/prepuce). I’ll suggest you to consult a urologist for the same.I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
