See your doc: Pain in your testicle can be epidydimitis, an inflammation of the sac that stores sperm. If it's a bad pain, it could possible be a twisted testicle, which is an emergency. You definitely need to see your doc for this right away. I agree to see your physician asap. Wishing you'all the best.

Urinalysis: Miles, you need to see the doctor. A pain like this could be consistent with epididymitis, a urinary tract infection, or an std. A doctor needs to examine you and obtain both a urinalysis and cultures for infections. Your sexual history will be important to tell the doctor as well. This does not sound like testicular torsion.
