In brief: Many possibilities
Teaticular pain can be caused by several things.
Less serious is epididymitis, infection, or trauma. More serious is a testicular torsion. Regardless of which, see your doctor to make a firm diagnosis and start a treatment.

In brief: Severe, sudden onset
Requires immediate attention to rule out testis torsion because this is an emergency & there is risk of loss.
Epididymitis causes inflammation of both epididymis and testicle, onset not sudden but testis very tender & requires antibiotics & should be seen asap, although not severe emergency like torsion. Both best managed by a urologist as are other causes of testicular pain.
