If this happens near the scrotum, the hernia sac can push on the blood supply to the testicle or other areas of the scrotum. Is this all related or is there another problem and have you got any idea what it may be?
There are many possible causes of testicular pain. I was kicked playing football in the testicles two years ago, I developed a lump which I have had scanned twice and been referred to clinics to have it checked out. In sexually active men, the inflammation of the epididymis is commonly due to a sexually transmitted infection. See your GP for a second opinion to your own, Dr Who.
Also, at times when it is twisted, I notice a soft lumpy area on the exposed side. It can also result from infection, although you would be aware of this as it is very painful.
Thanks in advance. See your GP. If this should happen it can change the nature of the testes into fibrous tissue rather than millions of tubules producing sperm and testosterone.
If you are concerned, consult your GP.
This can cause a destructive reaction as the body doesn't recognise the testicular tissue as its own and attacks it. Testicular torsion This is an emergency condition.
Order man manuals. The lumpy bits are the epididymis pipe which carries the sperm from the testicles to the penis. If you are an older man who has finished having a family this might have very few consequences for you, but if you are still considering having a family you should understand that this complication might lessen your chances of fathering a child.
Advice please. I doubt that I can give you any reassurance that would be worth a damn so you should express your fears to your GP and ask for a referral to put your mind at rest.
I don't seem to have damaged myself to have caused this, and sexual relations have been sparse lately. They are hard and white and can be itchy. I'm scared to death that I have testicular cancer but I can't find any other info that may explain the discomfort and tenderness that I've been feeling.
In these cases, a doctor should be seen right away. Orchitis can also come from epididymitis that's left untreated.
Many men who turn out to have a varicocele are sometimes referred to a urologist because of difficulty conceiving a child with their partner.
