Thank you for your medical query at AskTheDoctor.com
I understand your concern.
If you feel hardness on palpation, it could indicate orchitis, which means inflammation of the testes. This could be secondary to UTIs or other infections.
I will recommend you get an Ultrasound of the Scrotum for a conclusive diagnosis.
Hope this was helpful,
