Is there any danger to have a small lump at the top left of the left testicle ?

i have had an infection in my left testicle and now have been taking apo-sulfatrim for about 4 days. The pain is all gone, but i have noticed a a small lump at the top left of the left testicle. is this normal, or part of the infection?

Sometimes when there is infection,there may be inflmmation of the cords,vessels etc that might present as a lump.But this lump usually dissolves as the infection is cured.
If the lump remains even after you are cleared of infection and you are done with the antibiotic course,then you need to be examined.

I have occasional pain around my left teste, a dull ache that lasts for a few minutes or hours. On self-examination I can find nothing untoward, except a small lump, the size of a small ball bearing (about 3mm acoss), that seems to be completely mobile and tender when palpitated. I think it may be a scrotal calculus. Is there any treatment, or are they completely benign?
