User avatar Dear hotguy1,
Most testicular contusions are the result of trauma, most frequently sports related. A hematoma is a collection of blood , whereas the contusion itself in other words is a bruise. The body will reabsorb the blood in the hematoma eventually, but this takes time. The pain is partially caused because of the space this blood clot (more or less) takes up in a small space. It is not unlikely that the pain will continue until most of the hematoma goes away. If the pain gets worse, or you have additional problems, you need to address these to your primary care physician.
