User:So recently I found a small lump like growth under the left testicle.

Doctor:how many lumps do u have currently on ur testes ?
User:Its a small one.. very hard to find it...
User:just one
Doctor:is there any redness or pain in it ?
Doctor:may i know the color of the lump ?
User:This growth is inside the testicle bag/pouch... not visible.. but can be felt
Doctor:is it on the underside of the scrotum (bag holding testicles ) ?
User:No ... it is inside the scrotum just under the testicle.
Doctor:the description of the lump could be pointing to a cyst , originating either from the scrotum or the testis
Doctor:if the lump is not causing any issues or any symptoms, it can be left alone , and no treatment is needed
Doctor:usually sebaceous glands within the scrotum can get blocked , and they increase in size
Doctor:and these are called as sebacsous cysts
User:Should I get them checked...
