My husband has found a large hard lump in his scrotum that doesn''t seem to be attached to his testicle. It''s on his left side. Not painful but becoming irritating. He noticed it about 5 days ago. He has an ultrasound tomorrow morning. The doctor thinks it''s probably a hydrocele that has solidified. I was wondering, if it doesn''t seem to be attached to his testicle than do you think we can definitely rule out a tumor? I know we will know more tomorrow afternoon but I hate waiting. I looked on the internet to see about a hydrocele becoming solid and hard but found nothing. It''s about the size of a peanut still in the shell and hard. Thanks,
Carrie

I have a similar situation. I have discovered a spherical mass approximately 1.5cm in diameter, which is mostly hard. It is not attached to the testicle and is on the left side.

I am out of country, and am arranging for a flight home to seek testing and treatment.

My fear is of a tumour. I also wonder if this is possible.

The pain is dull, it feels unusual, and sometimes feels like water is being dripped on it when at random times whether sitting or standing.

Lump in testicle
I have exactly this problem but I got it inside my right testicle not attached to the testicle its like a ball with a little tail if that makes sense, it also seems to be growing aswell but not at a fast rate just at a small rate.
