Please see a doctor.: There are several possible causes for this and you need to be seen to be properly diagnosed. If you injured it, it may just be a bruise, but if not, it could be a twisted testicle, which is an emergent issue. So, don't delay; please call your doctor for an appointment or go to the emergency room to be checked.
