Testicular Pain/Scrotal Pain

Testicular pain is pain associated with one or both testicles located in the scrotum, the sac that holds the testicles. The testicles are very sensitive and a minor injury can cause pain or discomfort. Testicular pain should be treated as a serious condition as to not cause conditions such as infertility, erectile dysfunction, severe or chronic pain, or tissue death that would make the removal of the testicle necessary.

Symptoms:

The symptoms of testicular pain can range from mild discomfort to severe pain depending on the underlining cause of pain; infection or severe trauma to the testicles. There are some symptoms beyond pain, such as: Unusual warmth or redness; blood in urine; unusual discharge from the urethra

Treatment:

The treatment of testicular pain/scrotal pain depends on the diagnosis. The treatment may involve pain relief medication, antibiotics, untwisting of the testicles by a doctor or surgery.
