Have small pea sized lump near left testicle. What could be this?
User rating for this question
My son has a small pea sized lump near his left testicle. I was thinking it is probably a cyst. He doesn't know how long it's been there and initially said it wasn't painful but since he has been tooling, now he says there is some pain occasionally. By the way, he has no insurance.

Brief Answer: It may be lipoma,dermoid etc. Detailed Answer: Hello Thanks for writing to XXXXXXX Your son needs proper examination.You didn't mentioned properly about the site,whether it is in skin or else. Any way,if it is in skin or below the skin then it may be lipoma,dermoid etc. These are benign conditions and minor procedures are required. If it is dermoid or another cyst then simple incision and drainage can be done. Lipoma can be left as it is.But,it needs regular observation about size enlargement. So,you shouldn't worry and consult surgeon. Get well soon Hope i have answered your query. Further queries are most welcome. Take Care Dr.Indu XXXXXXX
