Hello,
Welcome to Just answer!
Did you notice it recently? Is there any pain? Does it feel similar in both side?Is it located on top of testicle or at the base? Is it smooth and round or cord like? Any urinary symptoms?

it feels simular both sides. one side aches a little, maybe because i have been feeling aroung alot only on that side. they are located on the top. i would say there more cord like than anything else.

Hello,
the stuctures you are feeling are likely the epidydymi, which are located on each tecticle and are quite sensitive.The feel like small pea shaped structures.If you feel other cord like stuctures these may represent enlarged veins called varicoceles.If you have varicoceles or any pain in your scrotum it needs to be evaluated by a doctor to rule out the possibility of a mass.

Hope this helps,let me know if you have more questions or concerns

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.
