At the bottom of my left and right testicle (left is a lot

This answer was rated:

Hi, At the bottom of my left and right testicle (left is a lot more visible and noticeable) there is a soft and squishy vein looking lump and it also seems to have a veins coming to it from the back of my testicle! (It's painless) It only is visible when my scrotom is saggy! I've been doctors twice now (with 2 different docs) and both didn't notice it and have said nothing is wrong with it! Could it actually be a vein?? What do you think I should do??

This is Dr. David

yes, it is a vein,

you have many veins on the scrotum skin

these veins help blood flow away from the scrotum back to the heart.

veins normally are soft and squishy.

veins on the skin are normal.

you don't have to worry about it.

let me know if you have other questions.

Ok thank you! It is normal for it to be like pertruding from the scrotum and lying on the top of the testicle though? I'm slightly worried it's cancer but the fact it's squidgy means it's probably not doesn't it?

I am a cancer doctor

this is not a sign of cancer.

prominent veins on the skin there are not signs of cancer.

squishy is normal for veins

best to ignore it and stop pressing on it

you will be fine.

let me know if you have other questions.

Hi it's me back again (sorry) with this vein thing that's lying on my testicle, I've just been in the shower and now that my scrotum is all warm it's very very clear to see and when I touch the testicle I can clearly feel the veins on it! That's what's worrying me! Is that normal too or what could be causing it? Thanks

it is normal to see the veins on your scrotum.

My only concern is that it seems to be on the testicle rather than the scrotum! Is that normal too? Or could it just look like its on the testicle and is actually on scrotm?

it is normal to have veins on your testicle.

you need to stop worrying about this.
