Question: Pain in testicles


 fdsman - Wed Aug 27, 2008 10:41 pm

Hello,

I am a 15 year old male who for the past week has been experiencing mild pain and discomfort in both testicles. I can't keep track but it seems it alternates between each testicle, sometimes it is in both. This only occurs when I am sitting, or lying down, if I walk around for long/short periods of time, I feel no pain. There are times where I am sitting or lying down where there is no pain as well. I gave my self a self examination and I found what I believe to be hydroceles around both testicles, the right one appears to be a little larger. The scrotum does not feel swollen at all nor do the testicles. I have no other problems as of yet, no blood in semen or any feel-able bumps in the scrotum area. Both testicles seem to be both the same size. I read on another medical forum that this is normal in teenage boys, however I want a second opinion to be on the safe side.

I am a virgin, and I am not on any medication, nor have I had any operations.

If any other information is needed, please post.

User avatar Hi fdsman,
There may be many causes of testicular pain which regardless of the cause needs evaluated by a physician to assure no anomalies are present. Some of the causes may include injury, infection, accumilation of testicular fluid (hydrocele) as you mention, varicocele (enlargement of veins) often described as a feeling of a "bag of worms", etc. Again, regardless of the causative factor I would encourage you to have a physical evaluation by your physician. Best wishes.
Sincerely,
Theresa Jones, RN
