Testicular pain: Testicular cancer is seldom painful and usually presents as a firmness in the testis or an abnormal shape to the testis. Painful testes should be checked out by your family physician or a urologist for further diagnosis and treatment. Most often an infection or inflammation is present which may need treatment.
