Thanks for posting your query.
Slight difference in the texture of the testicles with no other associated symptoms can be a normal variation. One testicle being slightly harder than the other without any palpable lumps might be a normal finding. But it definitely needs to be investigated to rule out any pathology as early diagnosis and treatment always has a better prognosis.
Do not worry. Just go ahead with the investigations. Most of the times the reports are normal.
Hope this answers your query. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.
Wishing you good health.
