User avatar Hi gamergeek,
The most common causes of testicular pain include trauma, torsion of the testis and epididymitis. Epididymitis is an inflammation of the epididymis which is a tube attached to the testes that stores sperm. This can result from infection. Other more rare causes include orchitis (inflammation of the testes themselves) and cancer. By all means you should have it checked out and the proper treatment given.
