It is not unusual for guys to feel "lumps" in their testicles. Often what they feel are "lumps" are normal structures down there. HOWEVER, it is important to get a health care professional to look at it. If there is any question, then a scrotal ultrasound may be ordered. Such an ultrasound can usually differentiate between what belongs and what doesn't belong down there.
I beg you to try to overcome your shyness. Can you go with a friend or family member? would that help? You need peace of mind and this won't happen until you get evaluated. Please note that many men have similar shyness. You are not alone.
