I've had a lump just above my left testicle for roughly 1 year 1/2 - 2 years, I am worried about wether it is cancer or hernia. there is little pain sometimes it is slightly uncomfortable, it is quite large about the size of a small egg, it seems to shrink if Im lying down and increase if I stand up, I can also feel it tighten and slightly bulge if I cough, and also bulge out if I am throwing up. Im not sure if it is connected to the testicle or not, but I don't think it is. it is extremely noticeable.

anyone any ideas?
