Doctor :   2.hernia
Doctor :   3. simple lymph node enlargements
Doctor :   since the pain is not severe, i do not feel it could be an infection
User :   ok,so anything serious
Doctor :   I would suggest that you visit a general surgeon for an examination
Doctor :   if it is varicocele, it depends on the grade
Doctor :   if it is a lower grade nothing needs to be done
User :   what do u mean by that,and wts the remedy
Doctor :   same with lymph nodes also, they dont need treatment
Doctor :   vaaricocele is a swelling of the veins system
User :   ok
Doctor :   which supply the testes
Doctor :   they just stay as swelling and cause no symptoms
User :   no cancer type of fear
Doctor :   if they cause symptoms like pain and reproductive problems, they need to be operated
Doctor :   no, do you have any weight loss?
User :   no its the same from last 5 years
Doctor :   ok
Doctor :   I feel you need to get an examiantion by the doctor to conclude
Doctor :   and accordingly treatment will be done.
Doctor :   if it is a lymph enlargement nothing needed
User :   but looking at this i need not worry of any cancer
Doctor :   if its due to infection , antibiotics will be given.
Doctor :   no need to worry , as your symptoms are not suggestive , but as I said we can conclude only after examining you
User :   its more or less from last 2.5 years,i did take antibiotics
Doctor :   ok
Doctor :   it would suggest about infections
Doctor :   also get a urine test done
User :   ok
Doctor :   if the swelling is significant they will ask for extra tests
Doctor :   did you follow my sugestions?
Doctor :   generally at your age, hernia or varicocele i can think of with your findings.
Doctor :   did i answer all your questions?
User :   ok,but why does it chage many times in a day some times its soft sometime a hard ball type n when i lye down for sleep its quite normal
Doctor :   it is too early to think of cancer without examination and symptoms being non specific
Doctor :   some swellings change in type or reduce when you lie down
User :   ok fine ,should i visit a urologist
Doctor :   more so hernias and lymph nodes act this way.
Doctor :   yes, if you do not find a urologist, you could see a general surgeon first.
User :   ok ,thanks
Doctor :   i hope i answered your questions
Doctor :   please follow it up
Doctor :   thanks for consulting me
