So i have had a hernia surgery before and everything went fine but now (3 years later) after waking up i had pain in my scrotum area and when i checked i had a little ball that can be moved around in the left side of the scrotum but i just have a bit of pain there and nothing else anywhere else.
You're going to have to sleep without a definite answer, my friend. It is very good for men to conduct testicular self-examination. Each testicle within your scrotum should be about the size and shape of an egg. There will be a tube at the back of it, and that is where the sperm is stored. It is important that you go to a physician for a complete genital examination as part of a routine physical... but now that you have found this lump, you should go in specifically for this lump. Because you are a hypochondriac, I can't stress this enough... testicular cancer is VERY RARE... however, it *is* the most common cancer in younger men. The best time to fully examine yourself is after a warm bath or shower, because that's when your scrotum and its' muscles will be warm and relaxed, allowing you more free movement and examination freedom. You want to first do it while lying down, then do it again while standing. In the standing position, place one leg up on a chair or the bathtub. If your right leg is up, examine your right testicle. Roll the testicle between the thumb and first finger of both hands, and just explore it for any lumps along the testicle itself, or looking for any free-floating mass. Then switch legs and testicles. It is normal if one testicle hangs slightly lower than the other, and it is also normal if one is slightly larger than the other. Does the area where your surgery was previously feel good and solid? Or do you feel a weakening in the muscle wall? If a free-floating mass is found by your doctor in one of your testicles, a doctor will typically put a strong light behind it to see whether light can pass through it. A tumor is too solid for light to pass through it. If the lump inside your scrotum is completely detached from your testicle and just free-floating, you have no reason for alarm. Follow up and point it out to your doctor at your next appointment. The lumps you need to be most concerned with are those connected to, on top of, or within the body of, the testicle.
I'm not sure if I'm going to answer this question correctly but I know what you're talking about. My boyfriend has this happen to him where his balls "switch" and him being a dumbass, switches his balls back. Idk what he means by switch because I've never seen him do it. I did research tho. There's tissue in your scromtum and that can be damaged and cause pain. I don't know if this helped but I hope it did!
