A scrotal ultrasound may also be helpful. I would advise that if your symptoms persist longer than three months, you should probably see an urologist. ...Read more

See answer: Periodic discomfort in one's testicle(s) is not an uncommon occurrence and in the absence of any noticeable swelling or palpable masses or "lumps" is likely to be self-limiting and short-lived. Often related to mild irritation or congestion and observation and an otc NSAID (ibuprofen) may be all that is needed.

Unsure...: It is unsure if left testicular & groin discomfort is related with severe cough, which, of course, will induce severe muscle contraction &joint movement possibly resulting in sequential residual ache, which will only be proven by repetitive experiences. To ensure connection between coughing and left groin ache or epididymitis requires detailed history review + physical exam, etc. So, do nothing or ...Read more

Cyst of epididymis: otherwise known as a spermatocele is most common benign lump attached to testis. Management depends upon degree of discomfort & would include scrotal ultrasound followed by simple surgical excision if you prefer to have it treated rather than do nothing. Surgery, under general anesthesia, is minor, simple & straight forward, for a urologist,as scrotal wall is very thin. ...Read more
