Doctor to evaluate: Pain, tenderness, or soreness in a testicle should always be examined by a doctor. The reason is that a guy's testicle can die if the testicle twists, thus twisting off the blood supply (called torsion). Other causes of testicle pain include doing sports without a jock strap, getting kicked in the groin, having a testicle infection, etc... Sometimes, an ultrasound scan is done to look for torsion.

? Intermittent: Testis torsion, or torsion of a testicular appendage. Would have had an episode of severe testicular pain which improved as testis untwisted. Torsion of appendage can be seen with a "blue dot" early & a tender pea-size swelling later. Could also be epididymitis, pain diminishes if scrotum is elevated. To be safe , would be best to consult with a urologist, sooner ratrher than later.
