Pain inside scrotum persists even after hernia repair and after orchiectomy, in a 61 year-old.....?

Pain inside scrotum persists even after hernia repair and after orchiectomy, in a 61 year-old.....?

Questionable treatment, unless indirect inguinal hernia shown first.: Testicular &/or scrotal pain can notoriously be difficult to manage and often does not respond to epididymectomy. Certainly removal of testicle should not have been performed unless testicle was very tender. Various regimes utilized by pain clinics should have been tried first & certainly should be tried now including possible acupuncture. There is also possibility of referred pain. Surgery often does not help with this kind of pain unless it is due to intermittent trusts torsion in which case fixation of testis, to prevent twisting of spermatic cord, takes care of problem. Wish I could be of more help. ...Read more

R. testicle pain w shooting pain in thigh. Was cleared for torsion. Doc suspects femoral nerve issue. I have tiny hernia they say that's not it. Ideas?

More likely hernia: Common things commonly occur & hernias are very common. Femoral nerve pain would be confined to the leg & often associated with leg weakness. Ilioinguinal nerve travels thru inguinal canal (next to hernia, if present) & sends branches into scrotum & into upper & inner thigh. Thus hernia pressing on ilioinguinal nerve is most likely cause, followed by other causes of Ilioinguinal nerve pain. ...Read more

It occurs in about one in six males, but unlike varicose veins in the legs, it is more common in younger males, ages 15-25.When symptoms do occur, they tend to be felt as a dull ache or feeling of heaviness in the testicle, which gets worse during the day, particularly in hot weather or after physical exertion.

Is testicle pain after hernis surgery common?

Is testicle pain after hernis surgery common?

Yes it is...: During the surgery, the testicular cord (of which the testicle is at the end of in the scrotum) is manipulated extensively. This can result in that uncomfortable feeling/pain of getting struck in the testicle. I recommend wearing an athletic supporter for a few weeks - it will help with that and provide some security while you heal and get over it. Be well! ...Read more

My left testicle is swollen with a dull ache now and then. Can feel no lumps. My dad has had a hernia before. Could this b the start of a hernia?

Swollen testicle: If your testicle is swollen because of a hernia, it would not be the start of a hernia. Before a hernia reaches the testicle, it would have to travel through the groin canal to get there. Usually, men are aware of that well before it reaches down to the testicle. I believe, you will need to see doc to have him look at your testicle. ...Read more

After open inguinal hernia surgery 3 weeks ago on the left side, my left testicle doesn't raise up anymore. It was normal before, worried.

Cremaster Muscle: The vas and blood vessels to the testicle are covered by a muscle layer that has to be divided when performing an open inguinal hernia repair, called the cremaster muscle. Depending how extensive the dissection, your testicle may not raise up any more. While I can understand your concern, this should have no major effect on your testicle function. Please discuss with your surgeon. ...Read more
