In brief: Go to the ER now...

There are many reasons for testicular pain.
Bottom line, if you have testicular pain...Pain in the testicle...You should go to the nearest er immediately to have special imaging to rule out a torsion. Testicular torsion is when the vessels to the testicle twist and the blood supply is lost. If not corrected immediately you could lose the testicle. You may experience belly pain, especially in kids.
