Lumps or Pain Within the Scrotum
Painful lumps can be caused by infection, inflammation or injury. Swelling itself from any cause, even if just a fluid build-up, can be uncomfortable.
The location of the painful lump makes a big difference regarding the possible causes. In general, lumps that are part of the testicle itself require more careful attention from your doctor than lumps in other parts of the scrotum or groin.
Is the painful lump part of the testicle itself, or is the lump somewhere else in the scrotum or groin?
