I dont know where to start, but I have been having pain in my left testicle for a while. I have had it checked out before and the doctor told me it was epididimitis and perscribed antibiotics. the only thing is I continue to get this pain in my left testicle and from time to time and I have a an STD test which came up negative so I know it can not be caused by Clamydia, which they continually tell me it is. The only other thing is that when I ejaculate it is a little painful and I notice that the tubes or vain not sure get swollen as if something is blocking passage in my left testicle. If anyone had any idea what is going on and why it keeps coming back, please let me know.

  • Not sure I can offer alot of help but I do seem to share similar symptoms of the testicle pain. I often have pain although in both testicles that comes and goes and have had just about every STD test there is and were all negative. I have had ultrasounds of the testicles and CT scans with nothing showing up. I have had this pain on and off for over ten years and have been told by some doctors that sometime men just have pain in their testacles. I also somtimes have a discomfort on the inside of the penis itself with just minor redness on the outside. I have been told that it may be varicocele which occors when enlarged veins in the scrotum carry blood away from the testicles. I went for over 5 years without the pain and it came back shortly after I had a viscetomy although I am not sure if it is related. I hope you find relief for this problem as I share your frustration and discomfot.
