Swollen left testicle with pain?

Swollen left testicle with pain?

Testis pain = see Dr: Testicle pain means a trip to the doctor right away because a testicle's blood supply can be twisted off (called torsion). When that happens, the testicle can die. Other causes of testicle pain include trauma, infection, twisting of an appendix of a testicle (a small lump next to a testicle), etc. Since one usually cannot tell if his testicle is twisted, an exam by a clinic or ER doctor is needed. ...Read more

Extremely sore burning left groin left testicle left armpit left shoulder stomach and painful burning lumps on left side of my neck please help?

Have it checked out: It sounds like you have a series of "lumps" or lymph nodes that are painful particularly on your left side. You should have it checked out to make sure there isn't an infection going on. Don't forget that the lymph nodes act as a drainage and filtration system to try to stop infection. They will swell and be painful. You also want to be sure the lymph nodes are not swollen because of cancer. ...Read more

Unrelated...: What you saw ( 3 small pimples) on the scrotum are most likely not related with dull ache from(?) left testicle. These 3 bumps may represent the presence of overactive sebaceous glands of hair follicles, which of course require no practical need for treatment. If still in doubt, see urologist timely for confirmation & counseling. ...Read more

Pain in right testicle that radiates up to right side of abdomen. Not epididymis. Small painful nodule where vas deferens  and testicle converge?

See a doctor: While it sounds like it could well be epididymitis, it could also be a kidney stone or torsion of a testicular appendage. How do you know it's not epididymitis? Early on even the best of tests can yield false negatives though my money is on a torsion of a testicular appendage usually located at the top of testicle between the testicle and the epididymis. You should go to the ER now. ...Read more
