Alright i think i may have a problem. About a year ago i expierenced some horrible pain in my right testicle and a rock hard little lump. I had it checked out at the ER and a sonogram..all clear and the doctor told me it was something called an appendix teste. Ok. Now its something different, i believe sometimes i may see what looks like a bunch of veins on the lower part of my left testicle but they seem way too big but not where the pictures of varicolles are on the internet. These are only visible after showers. Testicular cancer does not run in the family and i did not have an undescended testicle. I have expierenced a feeling of heaviness in my testicles but not for a long time and i only feel it after i lift something heavy such as a patient on a strecther then to the ambulance etc. *but not everytime as well.(Im an EMT-B but for some reason i just cant shake this feeling) Could it maybe just be an inigual hernia as i dont really have any defined masses just looks kinda like a curved enlaged vein but only one long one. Any help would be nice and appreciated and i believe that on my own im going to see someone, just after the holidays but maybe you guys could help me get some sleep for now. Thankyou

Do the veins on your left testicle appear also after heavy exercise, or when you have been standing or sitting for a long time?
Do you feel discomfort or dull ache in the testicle?

Well, to tell you the truth i havent really checked after running or anything but after sitting i have noticed what looks like the vein before i go into the shower. Im going to say more discomfort not really a dull ache but i guess i could also say i have felt that from time to time, but mostly the dull ache. Thanks for the help.

Hi!
How are you?
Have you been to a doctor in a meantime?

I'm sure you don't have anything serious going on, but , it'll ease your mind if you visit a doctor.
It seems you have testicle varicoceles, that are commonly seen on the left side than in the right due to different anatomic factors. They can lead to discomfort around the testicle, rather than actual pain in the testicle itself.

I forgot about one thing you mentioned in you initial post, pain on lifting heavy objects.
That can be a reason to be examined for possible inguinal hernia.
Have you noticed that some other activities, besides lifting, that put additional strain to that area, standing for long periods, during urination or a bowel movement, cause aching sensation, too?

Hi Dic, I am facing similar problem.
Lately i have observed that there is a bunch or veins around and below my left testicle.

It is completely painless but I am worried if this may lead to any major problem ?
