I developed a soft, painless lump in my groin this morning. What could it be? Should I be concerned?

ANSWERS FROM DOCTORS (1)


Answered by F. Andrew Celigoj, M.D

Swelling in the groin or scrotum could be caused by the following conditions:

- fluid around the testicle (hydrocele)
- a blockage in the epididymis (spermatocele)
- infection
- hernia
- tumor.

It is important to be examined by an expert in order to determine if treatment or further testing ( e.g ultrasound) is needed.

I have pain in my testis and groin area, and swelling on the right side of my testis. I have been check by a urologist and the results were normal. Doctors told me that it was not a hernia, or any decease if that swelling is painful then it has to be operated, so shown to homeopathy and homeopathy doctors gave medicine and pain was gone in swelling but still I have pain in groin area and sometime in testis. Is this due to excessive masturbation? I used to mastribate 4 to 5 times a day.
