Thanks for your query.Based on the facts that you have posted it appears that you have Testicular pain and multiple lumps in left testicle and one lump on Rt side.

Most likely this is either multiple spermatocele or Varicocele

.However final diagnosis can be confirmed only on clinical examination by a qualified general surgeon or urologist.
Please consult the specialist for clinical evaluation.

Further treatment will be decided by him and will depend on final diagnosis,

General & Family Physician Dr. B. Vineet Mohan's  Response

It is not necessary that you have cancer. If you had cancer the first symptom would be the swelling and not the pain. Since you have pain as well I am assuming it might be a hydrocele or an hernia. Do you have history of lots of coughing and other such symptoms. If yes, then it is possible you have this.

What you need to do is consult a general surgeon who will be able to treat the illness or at least diagnose you. I hope this helps.
