See a Dr.: Mumps causes painful swelling of the salivary glands and testicles. One or both may be involved, but the swelling resolves in both areas after 10-14 days. If one testicle is large and firm a year later, there may be a different problem. See a Dr (urologist) for a thorough exam and to determine the cause and treatment. Causes may include infections, hernias, tumors or varicocele/hydrocele.
