Sam,
Can you give me a bit more details - since when do you have the mass/ do you have fever, loss of appetite or weight?
This will help me answering you better.

no weight loss fever or loss of appetite

Expert:  Ken replied 2 years ago.
Thank you for the additional information.
Testis is a complex structure. Surrounding it is epididymis and small venous channels. Most of the masses in the scrotal region are not cancerous {I assume this must be worrying you the most}. No weight loss or loss of appetite relieves me.
I would think of - epididymal cyst/ thrombus at the surrounding vein or spermatocelec as the likely cause. I would not think of any cancerous mass with the symptoms you have. Ultrasound would give us more details though.
Please do not worry.

is the fact that my blood results were normal a good indicator also that there is no sign of cancer?

Expert:  Ken replied 2 years ago.
Yes, you are right. Negative blood report rules out infection or possibility of cancer too. :)
