Testicular pain but at first I wasn't sure if it was in my groin or testicle maybe even both. Two doctors have assesed me could it be anxiety?

Very unlikely: that anxiety is the cause of testicular pain,especiall if it is only on one side.If it is only one testicle it could be from an early inguinal hernia.Inguinal hernia is unusual,but possible in a 17 year old.If both testicles hurt then maybe it is psychsomatic.Good luck. ...Read more

Been having testicle pain for four years after vasectomy. Doctor recommending removal of epididymis. ...will this stop the pain?

Been having testicle pain for four years after vasectomy.   Doctor recommending removal of epididymis. ...will this stop the pain?

For chronic swelling: it may be helpful unless infection has become effiectively treated and infection has not spread from the epididymis into the testicle. The inital therapy should be prolonged antibiotic therapy. Surgery would be a last resort without any guarantee of a pain free life after surgery. I suggest you confer with a urologist. ...Read more

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
