With testicular pain, the health care professional's first goal is to determine whether or not the pain is caused by testicular torsion, because this is a surgical emergency requiring prompt medical attention. Though the following information may be used to help differentiate the symptoms of testicular torsion and epididymitis, any individual with testicular pain should not delay seeking medical evaluation, as distinguishing between the two can often be difficult.
When to Seek Medical Care
Individuals should view testicular pain as an emergency until proven otherwise. Promptly call your health-care professional if you develop testicular pain.
If you cannot contact a medical care professional, go directly to a hospital's emergency department.
