Testicular injury: Elevate ,ice for 5-10 minute an hour x 2 But since it involves testicles would check out with ER this AM as soon as possible, just to insure no torsion as that can effect future fertility. Testicular injury and perineal injury is common in male bike riders. Go to ER this AM as soon as possible. http://www.webmd.com/men/guide/testicle-injuries?page=2
