you could be having a hydrocele or cyst on top of your testicle
a scrotal ultrasound can confirm this and can look inside with sound waves.
hydroceles and cysts are benign in the scrotum.
testicular cysts and hydroceles are benign and not dangerous.
you need a scrotal ultrasound to tell for sure if there is a cyst or hydrocele there
usually you can just leave them alone for years.
no, this doesn't sound like cancer.
testicular cancer would be a mass coming from the testicle itself.
let me know if you have other questions.
