What could it be?
I have a pea sized lump on my right testicle. It is located on the side kinda, and at the top. Its hard and definitely attached. I already saw a doctor and I have an ultrasound in a couple of days.
Pea sized lump on the testes which is hard to touch can be due to:
1. Fibrous tissue
2. Calcified fat
3. Skin tag
4. Calcified cyst
It is difficult to tell what the swelling might be without a physical examination but if it is not growing in size and there are no other associated symptoms then does not seem to be anything serious.It is good that the USG is planned which would help in diagnosis.In such case biopsy is the gold standard to know the content of the swelling.Relax and wait for the results.
