Doctor can examine: Testicle symptoms means a trip to one's doctor for an exam in-person. If there is torsion, the testicle can die due to lack of blood flow. Other causes of testicle symptoms include trauma, infection, twisting of an appendix of a testicle (a small lump next to a testicle), etc... Since one usually cannot tell if his testicle is twisted, an in-person exam by the doctor is needed.
