Thanks for the query.

I would like to know more about this lump in order to suggest you better.

1. When did you first notice the lump?
2. Is it painful? Is it hard or soft in consistency?
3. Has it grown in size?
4. Have you suffered from injury to that area recently?
5. Do you have difficulty in passing urine or difficulty in getting an erection recently?
6. Any history of fever?

Please get back to me with these answers; it will help me greatly.

I am awaiting your reply.

I wish you good health.

Thanks for replying back.

It sounds like an epididymal cyst which is usually harmless and is present in many people.
Do not worry about it.

But, you need to observe the lesion if it:

1. Grows in size,
2. Becomes painful,
3. Causes discomfort,

In that case, you will need to see a surgeon/Urologist for a local examination.

I hope, I have answered your query, please accept my answer if you have no more questions.
I wish you good health.
