Another nerve pain: Sciatica specifically refers to nerve pain that radiates down the sciatic nerve (i.e., down the back or side of the leg). But, many times the term is used more generally to refer to any radiating pain from the back. Compression of the upper lumbar (l1, l2) nerve roots can cause pain that radiates to the scrotum, however, with any pain of this type you should definitely be examined by a physician.

Yes: Absolutely. More likely lumbar facet syndrome. Problem with joints that join the vertebrae.
