i just discovered a small lump about the size of a garden pea at the bottom of my scrotum what can it be and should i see my doctor right away
Hi. It probably is either a varicocele--a tangle of small veins inside your scrotum--or if it's in the skin of the scrotum it's likely a benign cyst. Neither is anything serious but since I can't examine you it would be best to have your doctor take a look next week Let me know if you need any more information please
