    Structure near testicles?

    Hi All,

    I've had this structure near the bottom of my testicles for as long as I can remember. It feels almost like cartilage like and loosely connected to one testicle or the other (I can't always tell) and is relatively sensitive. If i feel around it enough I can sometimes feel something small and a little harder than the rest of it, but I can't always find it and it seems to move around. It's definitely not on the testicle proper though, it's on whatever this structure is, and like I said it's been there for as long as I can remember. Any ideas on what this is? I'm not super-worried about cancer because like I said I've had it for years and I've had yearly physicals (I'm in my early twenties), so I feel silly going to a doctor about it, but I started worrying about it the other day for some reason and thought I'd post on here to see if anyone knew what it might be.

    Thanks,

    S
