This is Dr. David

you are probably feeling veins or spermatic duct or epididymis in your testicle

Customer: replied 19 days ago.
Ok they stick out quite a bit as well and are quite painful to touch sometimes I will show you a picture
Expert:  Dr. David replied 19 days ago.

that is not focused very well

that may be a blocked skin pore or sebaceous cyst or ingrown hair follicle there at the bottom.

you should try a hot towel on the area 6-8 times a day

Is it anything I need to worry about ?
Expert:  Dr. David replied 19 days ago.

no, there is nothing to worry about

you should still try the hot towel on the area

you can take ibuprofen 400-600mg after meals or aspirin after a meal and see if that helps the pain
