Think of the fascia as a robust 'hot dog' casing that envelopes the muscle belly. Small tears should heal with rest and decreased exertion. ...Read more

Pain in right leg abdomen and right testicle. Doc said prob groin strain as felt around testicles but I seem to have less semen during ejaculation? Y?
For about 7 months, I have had an aching feeling in my testicles, lower back and groin/lower abdomen that comes and goes. Surgeon said it was not a hernia and suggested a strain. It's not painful.
Maybe kidney stone: Your description is classic for a kidney stone that is small or has not yet passed. The testicle will begin to ache and this can go on for some time. Also, you can have lower back and abdomen and groin pain, sometimes along the inner thigh. You should have your urine tested for microscopic blood which would support this diagnosis. Otherwise, there are lots of options-epididymitis, std, cancer. ...Read more
