Please see a doctor: The symptoms are serious and need to be checked out. This is probably something benign, perhaps a varicocele or hydrocele, but infection or tumor cannot be excluded. Please see your doctor. Soon.

Sounds more like....: Epydidimitis, or inflammation of the testicle or seminal vessels to me. However, a varicocele is always possible. One good thing-cancer of the testicle is almost never pasinful. But see your doctor-you do need evaluation and treatment!
