Feeling discomfort, warm feeling and mild pain in left testicle after incomplete ejaculation from 2 days. Should use Cipro (ciprofloxacin) 500mg?

True, you may have something like epidydimitis, but the differential diagnosis includes other, no infectious causes. You may have a hernia (a weakness of the abdominal wall). The best advice I can give is not to self medicate. See a medical professional for a good physical examination. ...Read more

See answer: Periodic discomfort in one's testicle (s) is not an uncommon occurrence and in the absence of any noticeable swelling or palpable masses or "lumps" is likely to be self-limiting and short-lived.

I have very mild discomfort /pain in right testicle for the past 4 days started when was scratching my testes....Can this be torsion. ..?
See a urologist: This could be nothing, but also could be something that needs attention. A stone in the little tubules that connect the testis with the urthra could cause your symptoms.

Torsion, cancer, a stone, etc can only be ruled out by a urologist's exam. ...Read more
