I’ve read about blood clots forming and becoming large. What’s the most likely scenario?

I had a vasectomy 2 weeks ago. I had a lot of bruising & swelling which is going away, but I have a large lump on one side of my scrotum. I’ve read about sperm granulomas on forums but they talk about being the size of a pea or up to 10mm. My lump is much larger, similar to the size of my testicles. No direct pain or redness in the area.

Most probably is a hematoma, consolidated blood, and this will dissolve with time-usually over the course of weeks. It will have no long term effect and will not affect the success of the procedure.
