I have been having pains and aches in my testicles for about 2 months now.I went to the docotr and he examined me and said he could feel no lumps or swelling and said i did not have cancer.

But under both testicles there is lots of little bumps and i dont think they are attached to the testicle.I can pull them of my testicle and it feels like a little sack full with rice or something.

Is this normal?

It is impossible for me to diagnose or consider a diagnosis for a problem without a physical examination (inspection and palpation) first. If the “rice-like bumps” you describe as being under your testicles are not attached to the testicles, they could originate from the parietal testicles’ covering or from the scrotal skin. You can consult a urologist about this condition for a more precise battery of exams and possible diagnoses.
