Moving lump felt on top of testicles. Looks like cyst. Worried, advise required?

Hi Doc, about a month ago I felt a lump on the top of my right testical. It is hard to find but I just checked today to make sure it went away but it is still there. I can t really tell it it is an bigger or not but it is pretty distinct and it isn t set in one spot as in the lump can be moved around to a certain degree. It looks to me as a cyst on the epidymis or something like that. I am 16 years of age and in good health with no history of tc, I m very worried need assurance.

Hi Ryan,

It seems like a cyst as you say. Please get an ultrasound of the scrotum done to look for what the lump can be.

If it is epididymitis, it can present as a cystic swelling as well.

Meanwhile, wear loose and cotton underwear. Do not do strenuous and heavy weight lifting and exercises.

You should be fine soon.

Hope this helps.
