It sounds like it might be some version of epididymitis...

Definitely worth seeing a doctor about. It might turn out to be no big deal, but to be safe you should make sure it's not testicular cancer.

Could be a hydrocele too (if not caused by damage--bike seat, fall, etc.)... which usually goes away on it's own.
Either way, if it hasn't gone away I'd get it checked out in case it is part of a larger problem.

Could be testicular cancer. I had the same thing in 94 and let it go for over a year, thinking it would get better on it's own.

By the time I saw a doctor in August, he said if I didn't do something soon, I would not see Christmas.

4 rounds of chemo & 12 hours of surgery later, I'm still here.

Most men are reluctant to go to a doctor, so I'm happy you posted this.
How's the battle going now?

Hydroceles do not go away on their own. They require surgery, I have had two of them.
