Should I be worried?

I am a teen - Earlier this year I encountered a slight ache in my left testicle. I went to the doctors and had an ultrasound, everything turned out good but we didn't come to a diagnosis. The ache has returned and this time been accompanied by lightheadedness. I can't feel any major lumps on the testicle but have found a couple of bumps in the scrotum, not attatched to the testicle, not sure if this is normal or not. The ache seems to be more prominent when I am lying down. I am not sure whether to see the doctor again or maybe try a urologist. Please help

Re: Should I be worried?

A little over a year ago I was just sitting on the edge of my bed, watching TV and all the sudden my right testicle had the sharpest pain to it for about a full second and then went away. For the next few days my right testicle had a pulsing pain, like a jolt. Each jolt lasted a split second and returned every 30sec-5minutes or hours apart. I was of course very paranoid so I began checking myself like crazy and found a lump on my LEFT testicle and some extra......squishy stuff that I had no idea what it was. I made a Dr. appointment but it was like a week in advance. I began searching online and was convinced I had cancer and whatnot. Well a day before my Doctors appointment, I was so worried that I was going to be passed around to different specialists that I went to the ER at 4am. I was physically 'checked' by like 4 different people, given a urine test and eventually sent to the ultrasound room. I was still having these sharp, jolting pains every minute or so, even at the exact moment the ultrasound was on my right nut. I told the technician they were happening as we spoke and she said "there's nothing wrong that I can see". So I get wheeled back to the doctor and he says there's nothing wrong with your right testicle, sometimes we can have pains for no reason. Your left testicle has a varicocele (Varicose veins on your nut. 20%+ of men have them) and unless your in constant pain, you don't need to do anything with it. The 'lump' I found on my testicle was an enlarged vein at the bottom of my epididymis and will expand/contract depending on current activity. I wouldn't worry unless the lump is CONNECTED on your testicle.
