Pain in the testicles, swollen vein. Back pain. Any idea what it is?

A couple of months ago, my testicles started hurting, but they stopped, and my back is hurting now. I noticed that after I get out of the shower my left testicle has a lump on it, at first I thought it may be cancer , but I followed the lump back and it turns out its one of the veins in the back of my testicles. It only swells up after intercourse or a hot shower. I m planning to go to a urologist as soon as possible, but I wanted to know what this could be before I go. Thanks.

General Surgeon 's  Response
It may be Prominence of a Vein or veins in the Scrotum.If they are visible in standing position and disappears when you lie down,it may be Varicocele.
If the swelling appears in the groin region or just above testis after any pressure,it may be Inguinal hernia.
Any disease will be confirmed by General surgeon/Urologist.Nothing to worry.
If the Testis is of normal size,Cancer is excluded.
