In brief: See your doctor

This could be an infection, fluid, hernia, or torsion among other possibilities.
See your doctor to get it checked out.

Varicose veins of the spermatic cord (which attaches the testicle to the inside of your body) known as a varicocele can also be a cause.

In brief: Infection

Sounds like you might have orchitis, or an infection of the testis.
Other possibilities include testicular torsion, epididymitis, or trauma. You need to be evaluated by a urologist.

In brief: Seek medical care

While the cause could be mundane, testicular pain could be related to serious conditions such as torsion (twisting of the testicle, which can compromise blood supply) or infection.
Testes should not be painful. Diagnosis, including exclusion of serious conditions, can almost always be made by noninvasive testing -- probably with blood work and ultrasound.

I would first call your internist and let him/her examine you.
If needed a ultrasound could be done for full evaluation if needed.
