It is a good idea to check your testes regularly and report anything new to your GP for further evaluation. Your doctor has examined you and not found any lumps that are concerning, so that is very reassuring.
A lump that is only the size of a grain of sand sounds like it could be a tiny cyst of the tunica albuginea (usually described by the patient as firm pin-head sized lump) or a spermatocele.
As you’re worried that the doctor didn’t examine the correct area that you’re concerned about, it would be very sensible to get a second opinion.
Hopefully you can be fully reassured that the diagnosis is correct. An ultrasound scan can easily determine the exact nature of the lump if the doctor is unsure, especially if there are any signs that it’s getting bigger.
