Yes: It's not impossible that the disc herniation is the cause of all of your symptoms, but testicular pain from a disc herniation is rather rare. I would suggest being evaluated further.

See Your doctor: This pain in the distribution as you suggested is the result of an irritated nerve or facet joints or other injury typically in the lumbar spine (low back) which are caused by herniated disks, spinal stenosis or degenerative disc disease, etc requiring further evaluation by a pain/spine specialist and may be candidate for facet injections/radiofrequency ablation and epidural steroid injection.
