Doppler ultrasound: Testicular Doppler ultrasound is 90% accurate in detecting torsion (twisting of testicle causing blockage of normal blood supply). Pain can also be from infection or inflammation of the epididymis. A scrotal ultrasound with Doppler can help diagnosis this. Ultimately a physician needs to evaluate. If it is torsion, the testicle can be damaged permanently after 6 hours.

Need to get checked: testicular pain after exercise can be related to infections, hernias, and rarely torsion. Repeat torsion on the same side is possible but not likely. Recommend you see a urologist for an examination

Needs to be checked: With past history of testis torsion. You should consult your urologist asap as you are in pain again or go to the nearest ER
