Hello,
Depending on the type of mass that you are having like whether it is a sebaceous, or epidermal, cyst,hydrocele,hematocele,spermatocele  or testicular tumor;the treatment is planned. Any solid mass within the testicle is considered malignant until proven otherwise.

Epidermal cysts, hydroceles, and spermatoceles can be removed with a simple operation on the scrotum.For hematoceles,surgery may be done for drainage, or the treatment may be conservative, with just elevation and bed rest.

Varicoceles can be treated with surgery or other procedures to tie off the veins. Removal of the testicle, or a radical orchiectomy, is the treatment for a testicular tumor. I would sincerely advise you to consult a urologist for this.

I hope it helps.Take care and regards
