1 doctor agrees

In brief: Go to ER or your doc

Need evaluation by a physician to make sure the injury did not cause damage , or did not have torsion ( twisting ) You may need a sonogram

In brief: Trauma to testes

Go to ER this morning to make sure no torsion of testes (can be intermittant / pain is severe) .
Sometimes after injury or even infection there is damage to lymph vessels and persistent swelling but pain is more serious. Make sure there has been no twisting ( torsion) so go to ER this AM for that and they can check for infection as well. Afterward f/u with urology for varicocele/hydrocele
