Rigid feeling on left testicle, no pain. Normal?

I'm 16, an about 3 years ago I noticed this weird "rigid feeling" on my left testicle. I didn't know what it was, thought it was normal. 3 years later, same thing is there, but when I shower it becomes more noticible with all the heat. It has the same "rigid" feeling, and looks like if you get a ball of paper and crumble it up. It doesn't hurt at all. I've gone to the doctor before, he said it was nothing, but it's still there. Is this something normal because I'm growing or just part of my junk?

Hi and welcome to HCM.
It sounds like varicose vein or epididimal cyst and usualy isnt anything serious. Especially considering that it last for 3 years. If I am right then treatment isnt needed.Just watch for any new signs such as pain,swellings or urinating difficulties. It can aslo be ingunal hernia if this is prominent when you cough or do exercise. You can do ultrasounds to verify the exact diagnosis but I dont think you should worry.WIsh you good health.
