HELP! odd bump on my puppy!

I just noticed this bump on ozzie today and I'm not sure if I should be worried or not.

Sorry for the doggy porn...

Neither are. Hes 8 weeks old. It doesn't seem to be bothering him at all. When I touch it there's no reaction from him.

Both his testicles should be able to be felt at 8 weeks, they should actually be down in his scrotum. This is not a typical "lump" from a undescended testicle. I am curious , can you "push" it back inside his tummy? Is it soft or hard?

The vet felt both testicles when I took him in at 6 weeks. It is kind of hard but I can press it into his stomach.

Do you feel a "hole" when you push it back inside? Does it go flat then?
If the vet felt both testicles, then this is not a testicle....

I was thinking possible hernia from weak tummy muscle, not the typical one on the umbilical cord. However if it can't be pushed in, then that is moot.
I think if it doesn't disappear as fast as it showed up or gets bigger I would be taking him to the vet. ...

His next appt is in 2 weeks but I may just go in sooner. Thanks for all the feedback.
