What is "bio"?: What is "bio"? Did you get testicular doppler ultrasound? That may be needed although most of the cases can be diagnosed by detailed history and physicals without it. So, have surgeon to help you decide if what you have now is just expected postoperative condition, or hematoma, or epididymitis, or even infection... Best wish and luck ... Always. ...Read more

The extra fluid can lead to a rapid increase in weight over a short period of time (days to weeks). Swelling can occur all over the body (generalized) or only in one part ...Read more

Im having lower ab pain & swelling of testicles same thing happened 8yr ago & diagnosed as a kidney infection can it still be?

Im having lower ab pain & swelling of testicles same thing happened 8yr ago & diagnosed as a kidney infection can it still be?

Kidney infection: It is unusual for a man to get a recurrent kidney infection but it can happen. With the testicle swelling i would be concerned about orchitis or even prostatitis, as kidney infections are usually associated with back/flank pain, fever, chills, nausea and vomiting. It would be worth while to get a urine culture and see your physician to do an evaluation. ...Read more

Had testicle torsion surgery a year ago, Doctors said Im fine. Pain and swelling;top left testicle everytime after ejaculation. Not sexually active?

Here are some…: The described available info is not sufficient to offer a reliable opinion. So, it would be reasonable to collect and bring the detailed info on the onset, degree, duration, evolution, progress, and resolution of the discomforts after ejaculation to the doctor for analysis + timely physical examination, and tested as needed. Thereby, possible Dx can be deduced and reasonable Rx could be offered ...Read more

If there was testicle pain orr swelling in a testicle from chlamydia would that show on a scrotal US?

If there was testicle pain orr swelling in a testicle from chlamydia would that show on a scrotal US?

Epididymitis...: ...due to chlamydia and other STDs, usually would show an abnormality by ultrasound, but not always. If you have apparent epididymitis, with tenderness and definite swelling of the involved testicle, and sexual exposure with STD risk, the usual practice is to treat for presumed chlamydia even if not confirmed by testing or ultrasound. Better safe than sorry! Also ask sex partner(s) to be tested. ...Read more

I get random pain, swelling in my testicles, also in my lower abdomen closer to the pubic line. noticed veins becomeing more visible in my lower abdomen in the past couple weeks more and prominent.

Go to urgent care...: Although what you described is not enough to deduce a definitive Dx, you need an urgent attention so a comprehensive Hx detailing the onset, degree, quality, quantity, and progress over time could be collected & analyzed, you can be examined, and tests as needed can be done; then a reasonable diagnosis can be reached. So, go to see Doc now; don't wait. Online inquiry is not enough to solve ... ...Read more

After orchiopexy surgery for torsion I have extreme pain and swelling in my right testicle. Only hurts in my right and left testicle by my epidydmis?

After orchiopexy surgery for torsion I have extreme pain and swelling in my right testicle. Only hurts in my right and left testicle by my epidydmis?

When?...: If severe pain and swelling happens within hours or one day after orchopexy, consider possible hematoma and surgical pain. But if days afterwords but getting better slowly day by day, it's probably ok. To assess such condition, require a close review of the feature, degree, and progress of pain with its detailed sequence of events. So, record these and bring them to surgeon for analysis and... ...Read more

I have minor testicle pain, no lumps or swelling of testicle noted by me or my Dr. He thinks it's referred muscular pain, does that make sense?

I have minor testicle pain, no lumps or swelling of testicle noted by me or my Dr.  He thinks it's referred muscular pain, does that make sense?

Yes, makes sense: Most relatively mild or vague pain involving both testicles, with little tenderness, is not due to actual testicular problems, but is referred pain -- from the prostate or, most often, tension in the pelvic muscles. Probably this is what your doctor is referring to. Google chronic pelvic pain syndrome (there's an excellent Wikipedia article) and see if the symptoms match yours. ...Read more

My husband has pain and swelling in his left testicle and pain in left side. He had CT scan blood work, and ultasound and found nothing. Need other he?

See a Urologist: Sounds like some kind of testicular situation. If not treated could result in loss of the testicle. Diagnosis is by careful examination. May also be an infectious process. It's hard to believe that no diagnosis has been arrived at with what he's had done so far. ...Read more

Lifting something heavy, felt excruciating pain and then swelling in left testicle, could hardly walk up/down stairs and lots of blood in urine?

Lifting something heavy, felt excruciating pain and then swelling in left testicle,  could hardly walk up/down stairs and lots of blood in urine?

Heavy lifting: You need to go to the ER to check for a hernia and to make sure you are not having renal colic. Apply ice to the area and drink lots of water but you need to be seen for this right away if it is that acute. Feel better soon ...Read more

If I have testicular pain suspected to be referred muscular pain, no lumps or swelling of testicle, does it make any sense to get a scrotal ultrasound?
