Question: testicles bleeding
|paul478 - Sat Sep 01, 2007 11:10 pm||
Hi, I am a 57 yr old male.
I had a sharp pain (about the size of a pen nib) in my right testicle that lasted only a few seconds as I was carrying about a 30# weight.
Approx 20 hrs later while showering my testicle dripped blood,slowly, for about 3 minutes.
About 17 hrs later at bed time when I rolled on my right side I felt a pain about 1 1/2 " wide to 5-6" long in my groing area for a few seconds.
The next day I felt a similar pain in my left testicle but no blood or any other symptons.
It has been two days now since with no problems.
What can you advise me on this?
Thanks for your help

I'm presuming that the blood was dripping from your urethra. If this is not correct please post some more information. I am a little suspicious that your pain may be related to a hernia, particularly because the pain began when you were carrying weight.
Usually hernias would not be associated with bleeding though.
I would recommend you discuss this with your doctor and be examined for a hernia, especially if your symptoms return.
