In brief: Epididymitis?

The main connection between STDs and testicular pain is epididymitis, testicular infection with gonorrhea or chlamydia.
If so, it's almost always only one testicle; visible enlargement of it; marked tenderness to touch; and usually penile discharge. If both testicles and no swelling or discharge, it's more likely referred pain from the prostate area, usually not due to STD of any kind. See doctor.
