MY GOD......

WHAT DO YOU THINK YOU SHOULD DO?

GO TO THE DOCTOR..........COMMON SENCE. IF SOMETHING IS THERE THAT SHOULDNT BE...AND THAT NEVER WAS BEFORE....DON'T YOU THINK THAT SHOULD BE GROUNDS FOR GETTING IT CHECKED OUT ASAP?

Hey, hey hey calm down it could and probablly is completely harmless. Check out the mens health board, heaps of guys have had lumps in their testicles and people offer good advice there. Seeing a doctor would be good to put your mind at rest though. Good luck

Change doctors, and follow up. I went to the Doctor 7 years ago with a lump in my leg and was told .... oh, don't worry about it, its probably just fat. Well. one year ago I had surgery for this and it was cancer. I should have done something when it was small and not waited for it to mushroom, I almost lost my leg.

Yes, go to the doctor, and don't let them tell you it is nothing. Make sure they do a biopsy. My dad had a lump come up in his groin area, and the doctor told him it was just a cyst. Then another one came up in his neck, and still they said it was just a cyst. Finally my dad demanded a biopsy, and found out it is cancer. All those months were wasted when he could have been getting treatment. Now it has metastisized. Don't waste time, get it biopsied now. If it turns out to be benign then you can relax, and if does turn out to be something, you can get it taken care of before it's too late.

Hi, They are right. you should see another doctor, but chances are it is a boil. My cousin gets a boil in his testicle once every other month, It starts out as a pain and with in a few days a lump shows up. If it is a boil, a dotor can cut and drain it, the pain is relieved immediately. Hope this helps. Becky
