Taken a knock to the groin, seemed to miss testicles, have bruising, testicles intact but have nausea with certain movements on day four. Advice?

Taken a knock to the groin, seemed to miss testicles, have bruising, testicles intact but have nausea with certain movements on day four. Advice?

Safer to check: Pain/nausea and potential groin trauma cant be too careful and I've seen men suffer who have had significant testicular haematoma missed - 1 or 2 where had complications. I would therefore never begrudge a man wanting an urgent check for this issue and would encourage you to see GP or urgent care dr urgently. If turns out to be nontesticular they can give you standard pain relief. ...Read more

I have a swollen tender purple lump node in the groin next to my testicle. It appeared a couple of days ago. No visible sore. Otherwise healthy.

See below: The most common cause of a tender, purplish in color, lump in the groin area would be a furuncle or carbuncle which are a type of "boil". For small furuncles, warm compresses to promote drainage are usually sufficient treatment. For larger furuncles/carbuncle, incision and drainage by a physician may be needed with or without a course of antibiotics. Recommend MD evaluation for accurate diagnosis. ...Read more

Internal pain: Localization of pain inside our bodies is difficult because nerves follow a map from early in evolution. So the ureter that connects the kidney to the bladder is not where it used to be. When stretched at the top we feel it high in the back where it attaches to the kidney. As something moves down we feel it wrap around to the front and down to our groin. Urethral pain is from the procedure itself ...Read more

How long should the bladder area be tender after a percutaneous stone removal with a stent in place? I've never been this sore just from the stent.

From stent: The bladder discomfort is from the stent within the bladder. As long as the stent is present, the discomfort will remain.
