Couldn't find what you looking for?


my name is jason and when i was taking a shower i found a large lump beside my left testicle, it has a throbing pain sometimes and i have a hard time urinating. should this be cause of concern? i'm going to a doctor, just a little worried. my other testicle feels alright, just the left one.

Well, whenever there’s an inflammation, it usually strikes just one testicle.

The symptoms you provided do sound like an inflammation of the epididymis called epididymitis or orchitis, which is an inflammation of the testicle.

All of these inflammations are successfully treated with antibiotics but you should see a doc/urologist. The sooner you find out what the problem is, the better.

How long have you had these problems? Besides this lump you found, is there any swelling? How do you feel generally? Was there a fever or something like that?
