Possible: The nerve supply of the testicle is such that herniation of an upper lumbar disc could theoretically lead to referred pain into the testicle. The making of such a diagnosis would require careful history taking and physical examination by a skillful clinician. There are several other possibilities that need to be taken into consideration.

Severe pain of fairly rapid onset & relieved by gently lifting scrotum on that side could be epididymitis requiring antibiotics. Dull ache could be due to varicocele or hydrocele. Pain can be related to sexual stimulation without ejaculation. Suggest see a urologist if there is any doubt.
