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.
