Many causes: Many possible causes for acute mild left testicular soreness. Without penile discharge, burning on urination, or more severe pain or associated swelling/redness, I recommend trying testicular elevation and ibuprofen or naproxen. See dr if pain worsens or other symptoms develop.

Why would my testicle still hurt after being hit hard a year ago?

Chronic pain: Testicular injuries vary from mild bruising to complete rupture where the lining that holds the testicular tissue breaks. This can set up a severe inflammatory reaction that can lead to bleeding, fluid build up and, in extreme cases, loss of the testicle. A scrotal ultrasound can help see if any of these possibilities apply. Some men develop chronic pain from testicular injuries.

The list is huge: "bowling balls, " my ICU attending used to say! if it was a penile problem, the list was "long." he was a character. If you want a list of possible reasons rather than a definitive reason and treatment than I have to wonder, are you an ICU attending? If not, know this, educated guessing is useless and only delays in getting real treatment. Off to a urologist with you.

Many reasons: Torsion (/"twisting") of the testicle or its appendix; local trauma; epididymitis or other infection; other causes of swelling; tumor...Sorry there are a lot of potential causes. If pain intensifies, can indicate an emergency. Best to get it checked out--urgent care or er if severe (also er can usually get ultrasound to evaluate it).
