Small Lumps On The Testicles?
I am 25 years old. Under the skin of my penis on the part of my chin it has one small drop measuring 1-2mm. It’s not sore or itchy. I have never had sex but have been able to masturbate quite often. The kettle does not stick to the skin, but it can be moved. The shape is more or less oval. What’s the problem?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
It needs to be clarified, is the "swelling" in question a lump?
Lumps on the skin of the testicles that are easy to move can not only occur due to sexually transmitted infections. Therefore, this lump can also be experienced by men who have never had sex. Here are some possible causes:
Scrotal hernia (intestinal sticking out into the testicles due to weakening of the abdominal wall) Varicocele (scrotal vein swelling) Orchitis (inflammation of the testicles) Hydrocele (fluid-filled sac that surrounds the testicles) Epididymitis (inflammation of the epididymis) Skin infections, for example due to folliculitis, cutaneous candidiasis, warts Skin tumors, for example lipomas, cysts, etc. Although it doesn't feel painful or itchy, a lump in the testicles still does not indicate normal. For that, you should not move the lump excessively and get yourself checked directly to the doctor. Depending on what causes the lump later, treatment can be done by administering drugs to surgery.
Currently, apart from not manipulating the lump too often, you should pay more attention to the cleanliness of your intimate area to avoid the risk of infection. Also avoid using pants that are dirty and too tight. Reduce the habit of lifting heavy objects first. And finally, stop the habit of masturbation because it risks causing irritation to the reproductive organs, it could even lead to erection problems.
Hope it helps ..
