Lump On The Left Testicles?
Doctor … my son, the boy who worked on the left, appeared a big lump … was it dangerous …
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Need to be clarified, where exactly do you mean bump? Are the testicles?
Lumps on the testicles in children can be a dangerous condition, but they may not. In order to be able to distinguish them, it is necessary to clarify in advance how big the size of the lump is, how consistent it is, whether it feels painful, itchy, since when it appeared, and are there any other complaints that accompany it.
Some of the following possibilities can cause lumps in the testicles of children:
Hernia scrotalis (intestines sticking out to the testicles due to weakening of the abdominal wall)
Vericocele (swelling of the testicular veins)
Hydrocele (fluid buildup in the testicular sac)
Epididymitis (inflammation of the sperm duct)
Orchitis (inflammation of the testicles)
Testicular skin infections, for example due to folliculitis
Benign or malignant tumors, and so on
If it is true that you find these lumps getting bigger, or appearing accompanied by other complaints, such as pain, vomiting, itching, etc., you should check your child directly to the doctor or pediatrician to identify the cause of the complaint. Only with a regular physical examination, doctors generally can provide appropriate treatment. But if deemed necessary, doctors can also conduct further tests, for example biopsy, ultrasound, x-rays, and so on.
In the meantime, you should give your child the understanding not to squeeze, massage, or over-hold the bumps that appear. Wear on your child pants that are loose and comfortable. Teach your child to maintain the cleanliness of their intimate organs well in order to avoid the risk of infection. Do not forget, do not give treatment carelessly on the lump without advice from a doctor.
Hope this helps ...
