My left testicle seems to have an extra sack of some sort around it. It is not painful, but I think it is abnormally large. It feels kind of baggy and vieny. I am concerned about this and don't know if I should get it looked at yet. I am not currently sexually active. The swollen left testicle has been like this for a while. I have been hit in the the groin a few times, but not too hard. Replies would be greatly appreciated.

You should see a doctor for a definite diagnosis, but it sounds a lot like a varicocele. It is not unusual in teens or young adults, is usually on one side and does not change quickly. Until you can see a doctor, wear underwear that give some support rather than letting your scrotum hang free. It may not ever get worse, but you do need an exam to rule out other things.

The description provided by you makes me to first think of (just as opined by dlugose, R.N.).. a varicocele.
It is probable that you also have an associated hydrocele/hematocele (which may or may not be associated with the trauma that you sustained).
You must consult your GP first who may the be able to refer you as necessary. In the mean time, you should follow the instructions provided by dlugose, R.N.
