What causes hard sore lump under testicles?

My husband is 50 years old about 1.8 in height, weight about 100 kilos and has a history of angina, blood cancer treated successfully about a month and a half ago. Two days ago he discovered a hard ball under his testicals. Was sore when he closed his legs but the pain disappeared.

Hi and welcome to Healthcaremagic. I understand your concerns and I will try to help you as much as I can.

Most such lumps are benign and may be just a cyst or lipoma. However it would be good to do ultrasound to rule some more serious diseases out.
. MAsturbation and intercourse should be avoided till pain persist, if possible since I may prolong inflammation course. Some more serious conditions such as tumors or torsion are rare but in doubtful cases you should do Doppler ultrasound or scintigraphy.
I hope I have answered you query. If you have any further questions you can contact us in every time.
Kindly regards. Wish you a good health.
