Question Asked:

"I have had this ball like thing beside my testes, it's not stiff and I can push it without any pain but when ever I do anything straineous it expands and after a while retracts. It discomforts me a lot and I can't play some sports because of this. When ever I cough or laugh hard it also expands and a times when it does I'll have to lay down for a bit for the pain to go away"

    Hello, it sounds like a hernia. The only solution is surgery which is not a big deal. This is necessary to prevent it developing torsion which will be an emergency. Cheers
