vein on testicle??

There is this vein-like lump near the end of my right testicle. It feels as if it extends from the epididymis, and end at about the middle of the side of the testicle. And I can only find one of this, which is on the side of my leg. Should such thing be on the testicle? I did some research on the internet and found out that testicular cancer lumps are pea shaped, and that varicocele is a lot more than just one vein, are these correct? If yes, then what is this?? I am really concerned, someone please respond.

Re: vein like lump on testicle

It sounds more likely to be a varicocele. I have had one for many years and am having it removed next month. I would recommend seeing a urologist to find out.

Re: vein like lump on testicle

thanks a lot for responding, I have a further question from there then: how can you tell between varicocele and TC?? I can faintly see a green vein at the area that i feel this lump, and when it rolls around the color follows, so I am assuming that this lump thing is of green color. It also seems to be firmly attached to the testicle itself. Do these signs further state that it is varicocele? Please respond, I really need and want to know. Thanks alot.
