Physical Signs of Testicular Cancer ????

A few days ago, after a self-examination; while examination my right testicle....i noticed about 2 small ball shaped "things," on the top on my testicle, now of the side. i would say its in the epidydimis, there both very small, but one is bigger than the other, and they are right next to each other....also if i squeeze it, it is painful; sorta the feeling after being hit in yr private (like someone is squeezing your testical).

Could this be a symptom of testicular cancer? I am worried, because i couldn't find this on my other testicle

Or could this be my Appendix of the epididymis...? :-\

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern.
It may be the head of epididymis or scrotal pearls.
Scrotal pearls are benign incidental macrocalcifications formed due minor trauma such as in mountain bikers.
I would suggest you to have an ultrasonography of your testis to settle the issue.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
