It depends: Upon what the original problem was. Did you have it evaluated and treated at the time? Can't tell you what's the problem, but you doctor may be able to help you if you still need an evaluation.

Testicular pain: Causes of testicular pain: 10 injury or trauma; 2)heavy lifting can cause reflux of urine into the prostate and cause inflammation of the epididymis(sperm tract); 3) passing a kidney stone can cause referred pain into the testicle; 4) testicular cancer can produce pain sometimes. In your case, if it went away and you don't feel anything in your testis is probably benign, but if in doubt, get exam.
