dear friend
it is possible that you are having varicocele, that is the veins which are in a form of a bunch around the epididymis are dilated.
lying down through the night will drain some off and the size may appear smaller
please get your self examined by a surgeon and ascertain the exact cause its a easy and simple clinical examination followed by a sonogram which will give the exact picture.
In case it turns out to be varicocele, it is easily fixed by a surgery
