Testicular : Testicular pain can be attributed to (but is not limited to) the following possible causes: 1. Epididymitis - testicle inflammation, may be caused by an infection 2. Hydrocele - scrotal swelling 3. Inguinal hernia 4. Kidney stones 5. Orchitis - inflamed testicle 6. Scrotal masses 7. Spermatocele - fluid buildup in the testicle 8. Trauma to the testicle 9. Uti seek medical attention if you experience sudden, severe testicular pain, if the pain is accompanied by fever/child/blood in urine, or pain that lasts more then 3 days.

Testicular pain: has several causes. If severe and sudden in onset, it may be torsion of the testicle and that needs to be evaluated immediately. Inflammation of the testicle or epididymis can cause pain, mild trauma, or UTI. A hernia, spermatocele or hydrocele generally cause minimal testicular pain, and referred pain from a kidney stone or groin strain is again less specific. I recommend an evaluation.
