Urology/Testical problem


hi, my name is Joe, im 21 years old and for the past week i have been having some discomfort in my right testicle there is absolutely no pain, its just discomfort. its located near the top of the testicle (epididymis) it discomfort feels like a combination of inflammation, something is clogged, and a feeling of something is out of place. i have looked online for answers but i cant seem to find anything. both testicles are the same size they were before i started having this discomfort and i cant find any lumps or anything. any answers you can give me would greatly be appreciated


You could have an infection such as epididymitis or an epididymal cyst such as a spermatocele.  WHiel there are other possibilities, these are the most liikely.  You'll need to contact your physician or consult a urologist to find out for sure.
