Lump in scrotum, left side, where meets leg

Last week whilst having a shower I noticed a lump inside my scrotum on the left hand side, right up where the leg meets the groin. It sounds odd, but it feels almost like a third testicle, I can grab hold of it between 2 fingers, and it feels about the size of a 2p coin across (though its not round, more oval shaped).

Its not painful, in fact I wouldn't know it was there if I didn't notice it whilst showering. I'm not sure how long its been there, I'd assume only since last week since its the first time I'd noticed it.

Could it just be something like a lymph node, or is it possible it could be something serious?

I have no idea if what you describe could be testicular cancer, but if I had a lump develop in the scrotum I would go to the doctor to make sure it isn't that - as the consequences of ignoring testicular cancer would be dire.

Thanks for the reply.

I'm not sure what it was but it appeared to disappear after a few days. I'm assuming it must have been a lymph node or something as it appeared suddenly, and seemed to disappear fairly quickly.

I'm keeping an eye out to see whether it reappears.
