Could relieving L3 & L4 nerve compression at l4-5 disc cause tingling in the penis/scrotum?

Lifted a heavy object and felt tingling in left testicle. Local doc says no hernia, just pulled a muscle down there. But Scrotum is tight/retracted?!

Hernia to be.: you did stretch the muscle around the area where the cord pass. there is a natural opening there called the ring, there is internal, and external. the ring might becomes wider after heavy lifting, which will promote the making of a hernia in the future, the doctor might not feel a full blown hernia yet, that why it called, a hernia want to be. apply heat, take ibuprofen, and avoid heavy lifting. ...Read more

Itch/tickling feeling under scrotum near anus ..worst after masturbation..goes away if I press it ..could it be anxiety?

Maybe anxiety: It is unlikely any significant health problem is the cause of symptoms like yours. I can't say whether anxiety is the explanation, but it seems a good bet. Whenever someone suspects his or her own symptoms have a psychological origin, usually s/he is correct. ...Read more
