Testicle pain has a number of possible causes. The testicles are very sensitive, and even a minor injury can cause testicle pain or discomfort. Testicle pain may arise from within the testicle itself or from the coiled tube and supporting tissue behind the testicle (epididymis).
Sometimes, what seems to be testicle pain is caused by a problem that starts in the groin, abdomen or somewhere else — for example, kidney stones and some hernias may cause testicle pain. The cause of testicle pain can't always be identified.
Causes of testicle pain or pain in the testicle area can include:
Diabetic neuropathy (nerve damage caused by diabetes)Epididymitis (testicle inflammation)Gangrene (specifically, a type of gangrene called Fournier's gangrene)Henoch-Schonlein purpura (blood vessel inflammation)Hydrocele (fluid buildup that causes swelling of the scrotum)Idiopathic testicular pain (unknown cause)Inguinal herniaKidney stonesMumpsOrchitis (inflamed testicle)Retractile testicle (a testicle that pulls up inside the groin — this condition occurs in young boys)Scrotal massesSpermatocele (fluid buildup in the testicle)Testicle injury or blow to the testiclesTesticular cancerTesticular torsion (twisted testicle)Undescended testicle (also called cryptorchidism)Urinary tract infection (UTI)Varicocele (enlarged veins in the scrotum)Vasectomy...consult surgeons they will help you
