I've been experiencing some slight pains in my right testicle

Posted by @ejlouboutin16, Mar 31, 2016

Hello, ever since this Sunday I have been experiencing some slight pains in my right testicle, and it has been on and off during certain times. I did look up at the symptoms of testicular cancer, however I am not experiencing any back pain, swollen or tender breasts, heaviness in the scrotum, enlargements of that one testicle, not pain in the abdomen. However, I have felt I tiny lump in my right testicle, and I don’t know why that is. Yet I don’t suspect it’s testicular cancer, but what could it be?

Hi @ejlouboutin16 and welcome to Connect. Many different things can cause testicle pain and it is generally advised to see a doctor if the pain lasts for more than a few days. I found some information on some of the causes and symptoms that I hope you’ll find useful: http://www.mayoclinic.org/symptoms/testicle-pain/basics/when-to-see-doctor/sym-20050942

I also wanted to connect you to @JayE5 who has reached out with similar concerns in the past.

Have you considered seeing a specialist about this?

I have but should I go to my primary Doctor first? And is it Testicular cancer?

@ejlouboutin16, Connect is an online community where patients can talk with other patients, ask questions and share experiences. We cannot provide a diagnosis.

You should schedule an appointment with your primary doctor first, and together you can discuss if you need to see a specialist and which kind. If you like, you can request an appointment with Mayo Clinic here: http://mayocl.in/1mtmR63

Hi @ejlouboutin16 how are you? I wanted to check in and see if you ever visited your primary doctor about this? Have you made progress in resolving the pain you experienced?

Hello @aliskahan, I am doing well, in fact when I went to the doctor, the pain was due to an epididymitis infection in the testicles, for which I was given medicine. But, I have been feeling better, so thankfully it is resolved.

I had sever pain in testicle a few times and went away by itself. use tight underwear or one size smaller to keep them from dangling !!!!.
