Painless lump on left testicle after hernia surgery which was done 2 years ago

Painless lump on left testicle after hernia surgery 2 years ago I have a painless lump attached to the bottom of my left testicle. Its been there for quite a while now, at least 1 year. I have had hernia surgery 2 years ago. Would this be the cause of this lump? Should I be worried about this? I do not even feel it there unless I touch it after a hot shower.

OBGYN Dr. Rhea Chanda's  Response
You should get examined by a surgeon.There should not be a lump after hernia surgery if it was successful.Two possibilties here,one it could be a recurred hernia.Or some kind of pathology which can be differentiated by examination eg.hydrocele,varicocele,sebaceous cyst etc.So please see a doctor and get a FNAC/ultrasound.
