Testicular Pain

As men get older, some of the most common health problems they develop are related to their bladder and prostate. Testicular pain is a common condition treated by urologists. Classified by general pain in and around the testicles, testicle pain levels range from mild to severely debilitating.

The pain felt in your testicles does not always mean the source is in your testicles; it could be pain caused by another area of the body such as in the abdomen or groin.

Additional Information

Causes

Because the testicles are very sensitive, even a minor injury can cause pain. Common causes of testicle pain include:

  • Injury
  • Trauma / Torsion (this may be an emergency)
  • Kidney Stones
  • Infection or swelling of the sperm ducts
  • Twisting of the testicles that can cut off the blood supply
  • Nerve damage
  • Testicle cancer

Treatment

Different pain relievers and anti-inflammatory medications can help to resolve testicular pain, however, sometimes surgery may be needed for chronic pain.
