    Spermatocele or testicular torsion concerns
    AHintOfOregano posted:
    I recently discovered a lump on the top of my left testicle (I'm not sure if it's on my right testicle too). It doesn't seem to be directly attached to the testicle although I'm not totally certain if it is or isn't. And I'm not feeling any heaviness, pain or discomfort. I looked at a diagram and am not sure whether it is just the head of the epididymis or if it's something else like Testicular Cancer, Testicular torsion, or a Spermatocele. Can someone please help me?

    I can tell you it's not a torsion. A torsion is just that, a twisting of the cords and testical. It's extremely painful. Only a Dr with the proper testing can tell you if it's a spermatocele or Cancer. If you don't have insurance, check with a county health clinic. Good luck
