Many causes.: Swelling of the testicle itself can be caused by infection or by the appearance of cancer. Swelling of the scrotum, which houses the testicles, is much more common. Fluid can build up around the testicle, such as in a hydrocele or spermatocele. Dilated blood vessels called varicoceles can also enlarge the scrotum. If you have this problem, please see your physician or urologist for an examination.
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.

Show pediatrician: B"sd very good for you to have noticed. This needs to be evaluated. Most common I believe would be a scrotal hernia, with varicocele maybe next.

My left testicle is swollen and I always have constant pain in the testicle. I had this for few days now, the pain started after masturbation.
Epididymitis?: It sounds like you may have epididymitis, an infection of the testicle. In young men (under 35), this is usually due to gonorrhea or chlamydia, but of course not if you aren't at risk for catching an STD. If pain was sudden onset, maybe testicular torsion, needs immediate care. For sure see a doctor ASAP -- if severe pain or any fever, get seen even on weekend, urgent care or ER if necessary.
