Its good you're on here to ask about this. Please don't be embarrassed to talk with your parents about this. They want you healthy and they want you to grow up to be able to have healthy grandchildren for them in the future. No parents want you to not get care and have anything happen to you just because it is embarrassing to talk with them about your sex organs and male body parts. They obviously know you have sex organs and that sometimes these need a Doctor's help to get healthy and to fix any problems.

There are some different organs attached to your testicles such as the epididymis and the spermatic cords that can feel like bumps. These are usually located on the tops and backs (facing away from your penis when it hangs down in front of your balls) of each testicle more than on the fronts and sides of each testicle. Use the internet to look up detailed diagrams, photos, and written explanations of what organs are located inside your ball sack ( the scrotum) and attached to your testicles. Compare these normal male organs with the bump you feel. Compare both of your testicles to see if they both have pretty much the same bumps or shapes on them and in pretty much the same locations in each half of your scrotum and on each ball.

Usually a cancer tumor would not be the same size, shape, and in the same location on both testicles the way a normal male organ or part of your testicle would be the same in both of your testicles. Most normal testicle parts will be close to the same on both testciles, but not exactly the same. Most normal male parts will be tender or hurt when you feel them hard. Many cancers will not hurt when felt or pressed hard by your hands.

If it still seems to be something not usual in your scrotum or on your testicle, then ask another trusted male such as your Dad, a friend, brother, uncle, coach, gym teacher, if your bump is normal or not compared to what is on his testicles. Or just see your school nurse at school and ask for an exam or go to your Doctor. If it is anything harmful, you will need a Doctor or nurse to examine it and see what help is needed. They see males of all ages completely naked all the time in their training and work and they will be very kind and professional in how they treat you.

Good luck and write more on here if you can't find answers or get help to make this worry go away. The other people on here will answer any new questions you are not sure about after you look at the diagrams of what is normal in your scrotum and on your testicles.
