Patient Comments: Testicular Pain - Cause

What was the cause of your testicular pain?

Comment from: Suzy, 13-18 Male (Caregiver) Published: January 05

My son had testicular cancer at age 18 when the pain became excruciating. No doctor, health class, or media had ever told boys to check their testicles monthly. If my son had known, the cancer could have been caught before it spread. This is a serious flaw in our medical system and health education. At the time, the American Cancer Society produced a shower hang tag which described to boys how to check their testicles monthly. No one provided these to the boys; I picked some up at a clinic. Let's not endanger the lives of boys and men through an excess of prudery.

I'm suffering with pain in testes since 9 years. I had done all sorts of scanning, tests and others, contacted 5 popular doctors, even though they didn't find any problem. When I touch it is too painful.

I was injured in an auto accident with an extreme straddle injury to my right groin and hip. It's been almost 3 years and I have constant pain in my right testicle. Any activity using my legs results in inflamed testicle and groin pain. This constant pain is driving me crazy.

For the past five weeks I've had a sciatic (nerve) problem; starting in the glutes (butt) shooting down the side of my right calf to the top of my foot. I am tingling with numbness in entire right leg including the foot. For the last three weeks I've been having shooting pains in my lower abdomen into my scrotum. Everything I've been reading indicates most are having these pains in the left testicle. My pains are all right side related. I was referred to an imaging lab for an ultra sound. I saw my doctor today and they were able to get me in after lunch today. The technician couldn't tell me anything legally, so I'll have to wait and see my doctor for the results of the image. I'll report back with the results when I get them. The only thing that makes the pain bearable is the medications.

My testicle condition is that from birth one is small and the other is of normal size such that the small one pains occasionally especially after having sex with my wife. I have children but I can only have one round of sex with my wife.

I had unprotected sex in July this year. After two weeks I got a burning feel in urination. I saw a doctor and she gave me a doxycycline 100mg. I got a bit better but I still have testicle pain, and now I have symptoms like pain in my lower stomach. My Blood reports all are good.

The cause of my testicular pain consists of my left testicle entering into the lower groin cavity above the penis, causing a great deal of pain in that area. After pushing the testicle back down into the scrotum, the pain continues in the cavity area above the penis.

I have been having problems with my prostate, an infection. This has been going on for almost a year. I also have severe pain in my left testicle. Along with this pain I have had severe sweating and my sugar levels keep going up.
