Customer Question

I have a lump on my testicle. I can't tell if it is on the epididymis or on the testicle it self...it seems to be at the lower pole lateral. It feels round with a slightly irregular shape. I have had 2 ultrasounds for this, 1 when I was 21, another when I was about 27. Both said no abnormalities seen. So to put it bluntly...what the hell else can this thing be? I am in the medical field, a Nuclear Imaging Technologist so I have had a chance to see the pictures, they look uniform with no distortions. They took a bucket load of images from all angles..I can still feel this thing, mind you outside some gastro issues that I have had pretty much all my life, this is the only thing wrong with me. Let me know your thoughts!

It could be a spermatocele.In all reality it is probably the epididymus itself.
