I fairly lightly hit my testicle around the area where the spermatic cord is. If I damaged or detached that would I be in extreme pain?
Here are some: The structure of the sac (scrotum) & its contents (testes & epididymides) can dampen a lot of sudden speedy impact for protection; of course, there is a limit that they can absorb and stand. Beyond its limit, various degree of injury occurs as contusion or rupture of blood vessels or rupture of testes... resulting in a wide range of pain depending on the degree of tissue tension & inflammation. ...Read more
Testicle trauma: You likely had some trauma resulting in the accumulation of fluid or blood (a hematoma). You can apply cool compresses or ice (in a cloth or bag, not directly on the skin) for 15 minute intervals. Avoid aspirin.

My boyfriend fell on his bike at a young age and hit his testicles so hard that he said he urinated blood. Could this cause infertility?
Possibly. ..: Testicular injuries may or may not cause fertility problems in later life. If you're not trying to get pregnant assume he's 100% fertile. If you're planning to conceive he should get a full semen analysis with antisperm antibody testing to make sure that he doesn't have a low sperm count, or proteins on his sperm that can prevent them from fertilizing an egg - injury is a risk factor for these. ...Read more

No connection: Unless the injury hits to bowels (area above the groins) there is no good reason to relate that hit or injury to the blood in your stools. I would advise that you go see your doctor especially if your bleeding persists. ...Read more

Sensory nerves.: Just like anywhere else in the body, except testes are more sensitive than just about anywhere else in a man's body. ...Read more
Absolutely-: That pain is just as bad if you are 2, 20 or 70. These areas have large numbers of pain fibers and are very sensitive from day 1. In young kids the testicles are obviously smaller, so not as big of an area to actually get hit/injured, but when they are, just as painful. ...Read more

What is wrong with me? I am 22 years old. I have pain in my right testicle up through my lower right abdomen, my lower right side and back. The pain seems too be all connected and really just feels like I was hit in my testicle really hard, but the pain w
Hello.: Hello. I don't know the cause of your pain. Pain can radiate to the testes from abdominal sources like renal calculi and hernias. Abdominal pain can sometimes perceed testicular pain in testicular torsion. Here are possible sources of pain: epididymitis; hydrocele; inguinal hernia; kidney stones; testicular injury; testicular torsion; varicocele or a uurinary tract infection. It isn't possible to tell if this from an abdominal or testicular source. Due to the severity of the pain, I recommend you go to the emergency room to be evaluated. ...Read more

Sure: A history of testicular trauma can have lasting effects on sperm count, and lead to fetility issues. ...Read more
Usually no: Unless there is rupture of the testicle which would be result of severe trauma and cause scrotal swelling and pain sufficient to require emergency room care. These injuries are quite rare, & caused by more than a hit. Ruptured testicles need to be repaired because sperm escaping into the tissue could cause sperm antibodies to be produced which in turn could cause infertility. ...Read more
If only 1 testicle: ... Was injured, and the other 1 was fine, fertility should be ok. If both testicles were severely injured, that would have more serious implications for fertility. Minor testicular injuries, including the usual hits they may receive, should have no effect on fertility. ...Read more

Hello. I think you already did all the work here. Anything that puts pressure on, or cuts off the circulation to your genitalia can cause pain within the scrotum. You already mentioned several things you do that make it worse: wearing tight pants and briefs and sitting too much. Sitting with your legs crossed and bicycle seats can also be problematic. Think of all the pressure this puts on your testicles, prostate and perineum. Ouch!
ok, so what can you do to get rid of your testicular discomfort? 1. Trade in those briefs for boxer shorts. 2. No more skin tight jeans. 3. Stop crossing your legs. 4. Get up off your butt regularly and move around. 5. Gentle massage of the area and sitting in a warm tub of water can be soothing.
If you get severe pain, especially if is not remitting, then you definately need medical attention. Stay well. ...Read more
