This is Dr. David. I am reviewing your question now and will be with you momentarily.
you are feeling your epididymis which is normal to be on top of both testicles.
they can be tender if you feel and press on them too much.
they are normal and not a sign of cancer.
you would not have cancer on both of your testicles.
get a testicular or scrotal ultrasound. I bet it will show normal epididymis and testicles on both sides.
let me know if you have other questions.

there are spermatic ducts which leave the testicles to bring the sperm up into your prostate gland to make semen
you don't have to worry about cancer in your testicles.
yes, these ducts and epididymis can be firm to the touch.
no, it doesn't have to be cancer to have some slight tenderness.
the epididymis and spermatic ducts are above the testicle on both sides normally
you don't have to worry about these areas being testicular cancer.
you don't have to touch and squeeze these areas frequently

testicular cancer can grow anywhere on the testicle.
what you are feeling is not testicular cancer
go get a scrotal ultrasound
it will show normal findings.
