Post Boyfriend has tenderness in testicles, and a lump...

I am very concened about my boyfriend. He is saying that he's got some soreness in his testicles when pressure is applied to them (gently squeezed). Nothing completely unbearable, but defenitely noticable, and it does hurt him. There is also a small hard mass by testicle, that almost feels like a small shelled peanut. You can't see it, but you can feel it.
He's only in his early 20's, and he's been tested for STD's, he's completely clean. Is there a chance this could be something serious like cancer, even at his young age? Or could it be something else?
Any help you guys might have to offer would really be appreciated.

Testicular cancer usually stikes young men. Lumps in, on or around your testicles should be checked out by a doctor to be safe. There are other things that can cause lumps so don't worry to much. But only a doctor would know for sure. Good luck

I was 25 when diagnosed with testicular cancer. Through a self exam i noticed a lump,although it was different sounding than your boyfriends, and immediately went to the urologist.They caught it early enough to give me a 90% chance at beating it. Ive been cancer free for 6 years now. Have your boyfriend checked asap.the sooner the better chance at beating it, if it is cancer, and if its not, better safe than sorry. hope he is ok!
