Post Lump, Swelling Not Sure

I noticed a week or two ago... that i had a small swelling above the left testicle, i did some research, and from what i gathered testicular cancer is usually a somewhat hard lump on the testical, while im experiencing no pain really.. and the mass/swelling is directly above the left testical, when i stand up its a lil more noticable than the right side, after examining it... i would say its right around the the veins that are connected an hanging or the epiddymis(however you spell it), when standing its a lil noticeable to me that its there, i have been running a real low fever off and on, at one point this swelling or mass got a lil bigger only to shrink in size a lil, i dont really seem to fit any other symptoms of stuff ive read except epiddymitis, althought i have been letting my mind play tricks on me into having other paints but they quicky stop when i realize im thinking too much into it, the only other problem im having is a messed up stomach and gas.... i asked a nurse her opinion on the matter and she said it kinda sounds like a cyst and that they usually go away on their own, and told me to try a jockstrap to use support... i dunno if anyone on here will be able to enlighten me anymore, dont really have money, insurance or medicaid, plus havin my dad die from cancer 4 years ago (non heriditary) kinda has me scared to go to the doctor... but what i think is if it was cancer this swelling wouldnt have went down, and if it was fluid it wouldnt have went down with draining... nuthin down there is really bothering me.. but my fever and that has me thinking one of two things...

i over exhurted myself, or i got epiddymitis

hopefully someone can help me

Could be an inguinal hernia or epididymitis. Neither are very serious but should still be checked out.

thanks, i got an appointment at 8:30 in the morning.. still scared as hell, but i honestly believe it is epididymitis... ive been imagining everything wrong with me today. But when i slow down on thinking about it, i actually feel kinda normal..

i dont have anything other than a swollen type mass at the top of the scrotum above the testicles.. so im not sure if it could be a hernia.. but thanks for your reply
