User avatar Hello,

Please have it looked at as soon as possible.

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.

Best regards.

Hi Doctor,

I have been masturbating for around ten years. I often feel pain in my left testicles. I have no injuries as such. Could it be due to masturbation...? Whom should I consult about this ?

Thanks!
