Testicular exam: If your kidney stone has not dropped into your ureter, it is unlikely that this is the cause of your problem. Seek out a urologist to have a thorough exam of your scrotum and testes. He may suggest you undergo a scrotal/ testicular ultrasound. Possible diagnoses could be inflammation of testis or epididymis, hydrocele, hernia, or tumor. Don't let it go if it has been there for 6 months.

Could kidney stones cause a tingling feeling swelling or any other problems in testicles?

Could kidney stones cause a tingling feeling swelling or any other problems in testicles?

No: Kidney stones when they get obstructed in the ureters, give flank pain. But usually they don't give scrotum or testicular problem. Please consult your doctor for a thorough physical exam to get correct diagnosis and discuss treatment options.

What are some causes for random sharp stabbing testicular pain? Ultrasound was clear. History of kidney stones and severe kidney infection.

Kidney stones: Often the pain from kidney stones can be referred to the testicles. In a person with a history of kidney stones and testicular pain, I would be concerned for recurrent stones.

My left testicle looks like its hanging low and bigger then normal, no pain, do. Have a kidney stone. What could be going on?

My left testicle looks like its hanging low and bigger then normal, no pain, do. Have a kidney stone. What could be going on?

See your primary: Care doctor. This is the type of thing that needs to be examined to accurately evaluate. It may be due to something minor like an infection (epidiymitis) or could be a symptom of a hernia, hydrocele, or an early testicular tumor. Please have this checked by your doctor if you notice something out of the normal for you.

I have a bit of pain in my left testicle, it's pain Like when it's touched or pressed gently, its not continuously paining, and I do have kidney stone.

I have a bit of pain in my left testicle, it's pain Like when it's touched or pressed gently, its not continuously paining, and I do have kidney stone.

See Doc timely...: A specific Dx couldn't be derived from what depicted. Tenderness at being touched/pressed suggests something inflamed inside; testicular pain may occur sometimes along a kidney stone passage through ureter to bladder; highly variable degree, duration, & interval of testicular pain may suggests torsion. So. collect the info and see Doc timely for analysis, physicals, and possible tests so to deduce

My father was in for kidney stone but xray shows nothing, now his left testicle is swollen 4 x normal size. Catheter maybe?

Needs more assessmen: Ultrasound of both testes should be considered. Note any trauma. Possibilities: swelling/infection of epididymis, bleeding, possible torsion of testis which is emergency. Less likely cancer, prostate related.

I have kidney stone in mid calics. Due to that I have back pain and pain in testicles. But when I have sex this pain subsides. Pls suggest is it normal?

I have kidney stone in mid calics. Due to that I have back pain and pain in testicles. But when I have sex this pain subsides. Pls suggest is it normal?

Normal: The brain's perception of pain is a complicated phenomenon. Endorphin response to sex likely suppresses your perception of pain, however, the act of having sex probably has no effect on the actual presence, movement, or associated inflammation of the stone.

Left testicle llq pain radiates to left lower back pain. Had CT ruled out kidney stones. H/o Crohn's and colitis. What could this be.

Left testicle llq pain radiates to left lower back pain. Had CT ruled out kidney stones. H/o Crohn's and colitis. What could this be.

Unclear: Is the testicle tender and swollen? Possibility of inflammation of the testicle or epididymis needs to be considered. Sometimes, the testicle may intermittently twist on its' vascular pedicle and cause intermittent torsion with associated pain. Complete torsion can cut off the blood supply and result in loss of the testicle. If any of this sounds like you, get examined by a urologist.

Having pain in groin area and around testicles after stretching out groin for martial arts. Went to E.R did MRI and urine test. No hernia visible but blood in urine. Diagnosed with kidney stones. Been 3 weeks still hurting in groin.

Having pain in groin area and around testicles after stretching out groin for martial arts. Went to E.R did MRI and urine test. No hernia visible but blood in urine. Diagnosed with kidney stones. Been 3 weeks still hurting in groin.

Not convinced: MRI of whatever doesn't usually see kidney stones unless large. If MRI was for muscles or hernia ok. CT for kidney stones. Also the CT would help evaluate the kidney for trauma. See a doctor sooner than later

I have kidney stones. In a recent xray says: there aremultiple phleboliths in lower pelvis". Is this dangerous? The dr asked if had pain.

I have kidney stones. In a recent xray says: there aremultiple phleboliths in lower pelvis". Is this dangerous? The dr asked if had pain.

Stones vs phlebolith: Kidney stones are not phleboliths and phleboliths are not kidney stones; phleboliths are calcification of pelvic blood vessels. Stones in ureter or kidney are very different. Stones cause pain; phleboliths do not cause pain typically.

I have a tiny kidney stone. I am experiencing a sharp, moderate pain in the pelvis and pain with urination. Could the kidney stone be causing this?

Yes: Hello, You don't say what "tiny" measures, but a small kidney stone may have passed down the ureter and giving you pelvic pain and pain on urination if it is stuck at the uretero-vesical junction (ureter-bladder connection point).A plain Xray will help. Make sure you strain your urine and follow your doctor's advice. Hope this helps and get well soon.

Have calcified vein in pelvis. Radiologist report says unidentified ideology. (Also have kidney stones) Isn't that a phlebolith? Why then have a CT?

Have calcified vein in pelvis. Radiologist report says unidentified ideology. (Also have kidney stones) Isn't that a phlebolith? Why then have a CT?

Not sure.: Sometimes a phlebolith can't be differentiated from a distal ureter stone on xray, and a CT is done to make the distinction. Perhaps the calcified vein is a larger vein than the small veins associated with phleboliths, and further evaluation is needed. But I can't be sure based on limited info. Try discussing the need for a ct with your doc.
