i would go to a clinic that is cheap and pay the office visit and go from there based on their advice. Im no expert though but thats what i would do. I would also google the symptom.

You should definitely get checked out. Most cities have cheap clinics for people without health insurance. Are you eligible for Medicaid? If so, look into getting that.

Regarding the lump, do you frequently do self testicular exams? Did you notice a change from not having a lump to having a lump one day?

hey well my husband had a couple tiny lumps that hurt on his testical cord and it turned out to be a couple cysts
it was not cancer. The doctor said they dont hurt when they are cancer. also unless its a huge lump if its a cyst they dont do anything for it except anti inflamatories. I would still see a dr but look up your symptoms online
