Question: Testicles and lower abdominal pain
|farmergarm - Wed Jan 18, 2006 12:34 pm||
I have had a Vasectomy 8 yrs ago and last Sept. I started having pain in my right testical. It have moved to my lower abdomin and groin area, and both testicals now. The same pain as if I was hit in the testicles but not as bad but I feel it about 80% of the time, worst when i'm sitting down. Always the sicking feeling. I have also had center belt line pain come and go and low back as well. Have had cat scans and xrays, colonoscopy ,endoscopy and ulta sound of testicles too. All have come back normal. Have been to a regular physition, Urologist, and Gastrologist, all have no ideas at this time what it is. I am looking for some ideas of which way to go. I am a farmer so a lot of bounching in tractors and trucks. Thank You for your time!

There are many possible causes of testicular pain, these include: trauma or surgery; torsion of the testicles; infections such as epididymitis or orchitis; varicocele and hydrocele; referred pain from a kidney stone; an inguinal hernia or pelvic congestion. Pain can also be referred to the testicles from conditions such as ureteric stones or spinal pathology.
If after you have excluded all the above causes you are still experiencing pain. The only thing left is a treatment of the symptoms and a watch and wait policy.
This means that you will need to go to your doctor for regular follow up and possibly repeat some of the investigations.
