Customer Question

I have a small lump on my left testicle that feels hard

What is your age?

What is the size of the lump?

Is it attached to the testis or you can separate it?

Apologies for any intrusion of those automatic offers for phone calls. These are produced by the website automatically and outside of my control.

Expert:  Dr. Arun Phophalia replied 18 days ago.

Thanks for the further information.

I am writing the answer for you and will get back to you in 5 minutes.

Unless you wish to speak in person, you can ignore the request for a phone call automatically generated by the website, not by me.

Thank you.

I’ll wait. I am travelling to Windsor today and will stay several days
Expert:  Dr. Arun Phophalia replied 18 days ago.

Any lump in this area may cause fear of cancer. Your description does not suggest anything sinister. The lump is likely an epididymis cyst, small hydrocele. An ultrasound will confirm the diagnosis.

Usually, no treatment is needed as this may not enlarge or cause any symptoms.

I wish your symptoms resolve soon.

I would be happy to assist you further if you need any more information.
Thanks for using Just Answer.

I noticed it first about 2 weeks ago. Is there somewhere in or local to Windsor you would recommend I could receive ultrasound
