Diagnosed with left testicular hydrocele.

Hello. I have been having testicular pain in the right testical for around a month. I think I may also have a tooth infection. Could this be the cause?

Highly unlikely: Testicular pain is always a cause for concern, particularly in a young male with no previous medical history. You would need to do a self testicular examination and if the right testes feels lumpy or abnormally hard at certain places, then you would know that there is a problem. Tumor, epidydimitis and testicular torsion are three things that would need proper diagnosis and treatment ASAP. ...Read more

I have a sore glans penis. Also have testicular pains, urinate a lot and have a pain in my lower back. I have had two urinary infections in 6months.

Urgency/frequency of urination and a variable stream are the norm. Pain typically involves the tip of the penis, groins, testicles, low back and perineum. Treatment with antibiotics, nsaids, prostate relaxation and bladder calming meds fix it. ...Read more
