Question: Tenderness in testicles

 shirtripper - Tue Feb 08, 2005 12:20 pm

19 male and i seem to have alot of tenderness in my testicles, nothing has happened to them recently, i didnt get kicked or anything, they are just tender and seem to swell and shrink a bit, some times one or the other is sore and aches for a while. and oddly enough they seem to get alot worse after i ejacualate. i am rather worried and would like to know if somethings seriously wrong or if this is just some sort of temporary thing? please any help would be greatly appreciated.

User avatar Hello shirtripper,
You are advised to take this seriously. This sounds like it could be an inflammatory condition of the testicles (examples include epididymitis and orchitis). Both of which should be treated before they develop complications. I cannot rule out anything for you over the internet. Make a doctors appointment as soon as possible.

Best regards,
