Rest/Ice/Motrin: Testalgia (pain the the testicles) is a common condition seen by urologist. Unless you had some direct trauma to the testicle, i would attribute the described discomfort to "strain"...Advise to use scrotal support, ice to the scrotum (you can leave your underwear on), and antiinflammatory meds like motrin. If pain persists after 3-5 days seek out a urologist.
