Hi--where exactly is the lump?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

I would say at the very bottom, hard to tell?

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 3 years ago.
On the testicle itself or in your scrotum Trevor?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

In the scrotum (the sack)....

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 3 years ago.
OK Trevor. This sounds like a varicocele--a tangling of the veins within the scrotum. Usually not much of a problem but it can enlarge and cause pain and so you need to have a scrotal ultrasound to check it and to see a urologist to determine if it needs to be surgically removed to prevent any problems

Thanks, XXXXX XXXXX explain that some days its worse than others, and would it explain the ache? I am extremely concerned, especially if its possibly some sort of cancer.

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 3 years ago.
Yes--the ache can come and go but this isn't cancer, I assure you
