Ok..well I am 16 yr old male,recently found a lump in my chest, (now there is 2 in different spots and shaped different as I can tell), I looked up some information and read that its common to have lumps during puberty or growth average to be around the ages 15(was 15 when I found the lump), my testical problem is I recently have started to feeel a slight pain in my left testical, it doesnt constantly hurt and has only been hurting for maybe a day or 2, It mostly hurts at a certain spot, and I felt around and found the spot I believe, cant rly tell if its a lump..but could be?, not sure, I thought maybe its a problem from ejaculation, and wanted to know if you could maybe tell me what it is...

Thank you..

User avatar Hello,

Please have it checked out. There are many possible causes of testicular pain, these include: trauma or surgery; torsion of the testicles; infections such as epididymitis or orchitis; varicocele and hydrocele; referred pain from a kidney stone; an inguinal hernia or pelvic congestion. Pain can also be referred to the testicles from conditions such as ureteric stones or spinal pathology.

Best regards.
