Muscle pull: This might be a muscle strain of the cremasteric muscles that are an extension of the internal oblique muscle. If there is no pan, the presence of the testicle in a position higher than it used to be should not put you in danger. If the testis is very high, there is a chance of exacerbating sub-fertility because of temperature issues. I suggest an appointment with a urologist.
