Doctor's Notes on Testicular Pain In the Right, Left, Side and Lower Back Pain), Discomfort, Causes, Home Remedies, Treatment, and Outcome

Testicular pain is any pain or discomfort felt in the testicles (testes) or scrotum. Some causes of testicular pain, such as torsion of a testicle, are medical emergencies. Torsion occurs when the blood supply to a testicle is cut off. Other causes of testicular pain can include bacterial or viral infections of the testes or scrotum, sexually-transmitted diseases, kidney stones, and tumors of the testicles.

Signs and symptoms associated with testicular pain depend on the exact cause. Associated symptoms can include swelling or tenderness, redness, or a mass or lump felt in the scrotum. In some cases, additional symptoms such as fever, chills, nausea, fatigue, vomiting, back pain, painful urination, or discharge from the penis, may be present.
