Minor Testicular Pain

Lately, over the past 2 days or so I've noticed a slight pain in my testicles. It's on one for a moment, then its gone, then its a slight pain on the other one. When I get the pain, I notice that my upper thigh feel tight, the one on the corresponding testicles side. Its mostly my right testicle. What really freaked me out was that I found a small hard bump about 2 mm in diameter on my mid to upper right testicle, its on the back of the testicle, near the epididymis, and but doesn't really hurt unless you push on it. That right testicle is leaning a bit more foward than the other, and hangs lower.

I've looked up some information and found that it might be testicular torsion, and one site said that a hard bump about 2 to 3mm is a symptom. Also, strenuous activity is a cause sometimes, and I do recall pulling my right thigh a while ago... yet I remember my testicles being uneven for about a year. Remember that this pain is felt in the testicle and at the same time I have minor thigh pain, both the same magnitude.

Do you think this is serious or am I checking so much that my constant (not rough) inspection of my testicles is the reason for pain? I'm scared

  • Wow. You just described the exact and I mean EXACT!..same symptoms that I've just experienced over the last few days- same right side, thigh/groin pain etc accept I've had a fever, bladder discomfort too.I thought I was in the last death throws of cancer or something!Also I wasn't eating much which I thought ***n..the bowels are shutting down or something! Well, I bit the bullet and dropped trou at my Doc's today wondering how many days I had left to live. He just laughed and said I was suffering the most common testicular complaint in the world-Epididymitis! No medication, no surgery, NO CANCER!!..NO cutting your twig n berries off with a rusty spoon! He just gave me some anti inflam tabs (which I had to beg for) and said stop worrying!!!! I'm feeling better already! The reason I had an upset stomach? I wasn't eating! Why wasn't I eating?Cos I had worried myself sick!I am now eating up large as I write! Hope this helps mate. Cheers JD

  • Hi there. I must admit, I didn't get any fluid like swelling but I did get the pain there and through the groin.I had no swelling of the scrotum or redness, just a dull ache in the right testicle. From a laymans perspective I would suggest it could be an inguinal hernia???I could also be talking crap and be way off. I didn't need any treatment for my condition (epididymitus) but the pain went away after about 4 or 5 days and then the lump at the base of the testicle went away completely after about ten days.My doctor said it wasn't serious. It wasn't. Hope this helps. Cheers JD

  • I'm having this now in my left testicle and left thigh... glad I'm not the only one.I'm in quite a bit of pain and my stomach is hurting a fair bit.Should I still go to the doctors or should I let it sort itself out? I don't want to be laughed out of the surgery too!

  • Hi Jonny. Yeah I had felt uncomfortable in my stomach too but I thought it was more like my bladder, perhaps a minor bladder infection (which isn't that uncommon apparently).I needed to urinate often even though my bladder was no where near full capacity. This was all accompanied by a lump at the top of my right testicle. This eventually went away with all the other symptoms (epididymitus) after taking some anti inflam tabs. I would suggest if it gets unbearable that you go see a doc. It might be a teticular hernia or cyst???. Let us know of your progress. Sorry I cant really be of much help. Cheers JD

  • Is it possible to have a semi torsion? For a couple of days my left testicle has been risen out of place, and feels slightly swollen. But the testicle still has feeling, I am able to have painless sex and still ejaculate a large load. But still the testicle is out of place and there is a small amount of pain and swallen feeling.... so what gives?Would someone with a torsion be able to have painless sex and the ability to shoot a large load. I am getting it checked by a doctor but I just wondered if a semi torsion is possible?

  • Hey guys I'm Ty, and I have all the same symptoms as you all but my small lump is just behind the testes next to my leg. I've been searching and the best answer i've found is Inguinal Hernia, but I don't want to jump to conclusions. Are all the symptoms of U guys ON THE TESTACLE, or did somebody expierience the lump behind the the sack? I don't have insurance and don't want to make an unnessasary trip to the E.R.? Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!!!

  • Epididymitis is what you got! I read your post and it was a perfect mirror of my own experience, right down to the finest detail.So I'm hopin this is whats goin on. just righty hurts, and only if ive been lifting/straining...doesnt feel swollen, but it does seem to be a bit higher than usual. how can i tell if it epididymitis, or what i was thinkin; a hernia? and what do i need to do in either case? just take it easy for a bit?

  • I have the exxxxxxxxxact problem. But no Bump or thigh pain. I have slight fever. The DOC told me it was just a swelling of the epididimis. Nothing apart from that. If it was something else, the pain would have been more than what I am experiencing. Right now, its just a minor pain. But, just in case, he wanted me to come over again tomorrow and take an Ultra Sound. He precsribed few anti flamm pills (Cipro 500mg) and told me that these pills should be taking care of all the bacterial probs I have. Lets hope nothing is wrong with us. God Bless All.

  • Yes well the weird thing now is that recently the throbing sharp pain i had in my testicles has moved all around my body (not spread) i sometimes get the same pain at the back of my head, end of my elbow, inner thigh, Even by the HEART. It happens one day and then goes for a bit and then comes back again. I have no idea. I've just given up. My doctor last time i saw him said i looked perfectly healthy, and viral infections they thought were ruled out and so they've left it. I'm telling you now, sometimes you just know when something is wrong, and this is one of those things. I'm only 17 and yet my arms some times go weak and numb like a dead arm with pins and needles. (mainly my left arm) which bring me back to my heart. If i even suggest that it could be something serious (which maybe its not, im no doctor) then my doctor will simply say "no, your to young" with no tests...nothing. I haven't been even offered any tests. my doc doesn't know about the pain moving. But i still exercise regularly and don't have too much problem. I think it could be a transport system, or even blood posioning. i don't know. God bless everyone.

  • I’ve been reading a bunch of these postings but and came across some that are similar but not quite exactly like mine. Righty is the one that been giving me a slight discomfort, for the past 2 days. I had it for one day and then it went away the very next day, Then I had sex the day after and it came back the following day, which was yesterday, and I really didn’t feel anything this morning until I came to work. This second time It hurt my pelvic bone underneath as well and made it feel all sore. The soreness was the worst the first day(yesterday) and now it’s almost gone. I thought it was from the sex because we were pretty rough, and I haven’t been active since December 08 and before that, the December of 07 before. It’s not like pain pain, its just an annoying, bearable little pain, and its only in the right testicle. There’s no swelling or redness and don’t feel any bumps. The only thing I feel the difference and where it actually hurts is in the veins on the right side and the epididymis is a little bigger than the other one and is what hurts the worse when I touch it. Should I wait a few more days to see if he pain goes away, or go get this checked out? To be honest the first time I had it was like a day after I masturbated, which I hadn’t done in a loooonng time. So I’m guessing this is like an ejaculation thing. So I’m wondering if It’s just a small infection that I don’t need to worry about like some doctors have said to a few ppl on here. The thing is that I’m a little low on cash right now and that’s why I’m seeing if I can ride this out. Any Suggestions or input? Please contact as well bjones2809@yahoo.com
