Thanks for your query.
Read and understood the problems.
You were checking the testicle on your own, found a sensitive mass, and now is it smaller today.
This may be due to an acute epididymitis, or a twisted cyst related to the structures in the scrotum which got ruptured or de-rotated. Hence got smaller.
Your research may be absolutely wrong as the calcium deposits do not cause any sensitive mass, nor they appear within a day nor can they disappear.

I would advise you the following:
Get an appointment and a direct physical examination done by a General Surgeon or an Urologist.
Get an ultrasonography of the abdomen and color doppler also of the scrotum.

A proper diagnosis can lead to a proper treatment if required.
