Our expert says:
doctors are aware that this can and does happen, especially to teenage guys. What I suggest is that if it does happen that you can just say to him that this happens a lot to you at the moment and that its embarrasing - your doctor will remember this all too well, so try not to worry.
What is important is that you do get the lump checked out - this is VERY important. Testicular cancer if that is what it is is very treatable and the reason people experience complications is that they are too embarrassed to see their doctor. So please go and see him asap.
It may be that the lump is not something to worry about - but let your doctor be the judge of that. Put your health first and your pride second and you will be fine.
Hope all goes ok.
