Testicular Pain

Testicular pain is a common symptom. You wouldn't know that though, unless you are a urologist or GP. Men only very rarely discuss their testes with friends. It is happily, very, unusual for there to be a serious cause for testicular pain.

Pain in the testicle can either be caused by local factors such as a previous vasectomy, swelling in the scrotum or infection. Sometimes it is caused by referred pain from a trapped nerve. People with this type of pain often find that their testicular pain is worse when their back is playing up.

The first step is to take care of your back if this is causing problems. The next step is to try a simple pain killer such as Paracetamol 1g four times a day for a fortnight. This is often enough to break the cycle of pain.

It is essential that you examine your testes, please see the rest of this part of the site for an explanation. If you are worried or find an abnormaility get it checked by your doctor sooner rather than later.

Only very rarely is pain in the testicle caused by testicular cancer. If in doubt get yourself checked at your GP.
