Unhappy Should i be worried???

Hi im 17, 2 years ago i found a largish lump i dont know if its on or just above the left testicle. So i went to the doctors and he checked it out, he then told me to lie flat on my back so i did and the lump totally dissapeared!! He said it was nothing to worry about and it was something to do with the pipes joint to my testicles.

Anyway a few weeks ago i noticed that the lump changed and i think got bigger and today i think it has got only slightly bigger again. BUt it still dissapears when i lie down. I have booked an appointment with the doctor. Should i worry about it?

There's a possibility that you may have an inguinal hernia which, while not typically a life-threatening condition, usually requires surgery.
