Soft Lump on Testicle

Published: April 01, 2014
Dear TeenHealthFX,

Hi I'm 13 and I've had a small soft lump on my right testicle for about two years now.Urinating, ejaculation and everything seems normal. No aches or pains or anything like that, although when I was four I had a small cyst removed. My face is quite spotty so I wondered if it was just acne- if you can even get it down their!!!!

 


Dear Soft Lump on Testicle,

Pimples and acne are an inflammatory condition of the sebaceous glands and hair follicles. The lesions are usually found on face, neck and chest skin. But they are also common on genital areas and the scrotum in males. 

Chance are you condition is not serious but the only way to know for sure is to be checked out by a doctor. While you are there you can also speak with your doctor about your facial acne if it is bothering you. He/she may refer you to a dermatologist (skin specialist) who could examine you and prescribe a course of treatment to help improve your complexion. 

If you don't have a doctor and live in northern New Jersey, you can call the Adolescent/Young Adult Center for Health in Morristown 973-971-6475 or the Adolescent/Young Adult Center for Health in Summit at 908-522-5757 for an appointment. Outside this area contact your local teen health center or Planned Parenthood.
