Thank you for your question,
If this is still growing even after 2 or more days of antibiotics then it means that antibiotic needs to be changed. Second if it is getting larger then it needs drainage with help of syringe, you should not try to pinch it as it can worsen the problem by spilling of pus into the deep tissues.
Second taking bath of warm water for more than 10 minutes has shown to slow the growth of sperms. So try not to take more than 10 minutes bath in warm water with testis fully soaked.
Let me know if you have questions.
Do rate my reply as positive so that I can continue to help you.

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
