Default Lump on testicle.

Jed has just got up this evening and straight away we noticed a large lump on one of his testes. So worried.
Obviously I shall take him to the vets on Monday. I don't want to fear the worst x

Is he very warm there? Can he retract the protruding part? Can you feel if it is hot or is it red.
The testicles are quite mobile and they can protrude like a peanut under the skin like that. Try taking him to a cooler room and see if it goes back up.

I had a similar scare with Charlie Their boy bits can look like that when they get warm and relaxed, and sort of pop out. Charlie's looked like a big pink abscess. Do they look anything like this? If so it's their porta cushions getting bigger

You're welcome - it's a bit of a shock the first time you see it isn't it?! It doesn't happen all the time but if he gets cosy in a blanket or in his donut bed they often pop out

The first time I saw it happen to fudge I thought there was something wrong as I never remembered the actual testicles coming out of their "pouches" so to speak :/ I was thankful to learn that it is fairly normal! Keep an eye on him to make sure that the lump you noticed subsides. All should be ok
