Lumps or Pain Within the Scrotum
A painful lump that is high in the scrotum makes a hernia a good possibility. Make an appointment with your doctor.
A painful lump coming from the groin also can be a cyst or swollen lymph node. Your doctor will likely be able to make a diagnosis by examining you. Sometimes, another test, such as an ultrasound, or a CT scan, may be necessary.
