25 year old with painful lump on the scrotum. Anything serious?

I have a painful lump in the right hand side of my scrotum since 4 days. It is near one of my testicles. The lump is not visible and one has to push a finger inside (from the right hand side) to feel the lump. I am also having pain in penis/scrotum, inner thighs, and lower back (I guess due to this lump). Sitting on a chair, or sleeping on the left or right side, has also become uncomfortable and painful. There were no other problems in my medical history before this. Kindly advise. Male, Age 25

General Surgeon 's  Response
As per your query,you might have got infection of epididymis,a structure attached to scrotum.
Sometimes,testis will also be involved in the infection.
But the correct diagnosis is confirmed by Ultrasound scrotum.
Till then,please take Antibiotic like Cefpodoxime and anti inflammatory drug.
If you come back with ultrasound report,i will clarify further.
Wish you good health
