Forum Name: Testicular Cancer

Question: Testicle pain

 puffer - Sun Jan 09, 2005 1:18 am

One of my testicles hurts so bad I can barely walk. It feels like it's bruised or something. You can't notice anything by looking at it. It has been this way for a couple of days now. I would just like to know what is causing this pain if it's something thats going to go away on it's own or if I should go to the doctor. It may also be from the pain killers I'm currently taking. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

User avatar Hi puffer,
Many things cause testicular pain from infections to trauma. Have you had a recent injury? Is that the reason you are taking pain medications? Do you have any fever, chills, nausea, vomiting, discharge etc. etc?
