I'm 19, not sexually active, no history of testicular cancer or other issues in my family
I've been having this problem for about 4 or 5 days now. I have some minor pain in my scrotum, mostly concentrated around the left side. The discomfort kind of reaches into the lower abdomen at times as well. My left testicle seems to be angled a little bit (the front is higher than the rear, in relation to the right testicle).
I'm nearly positive it's not torsion, since I haven't had any swelling or sharp, severe pain, just minor discomfort sometimes bordering on dull ache. If it is torsion somehow, that testicle is dead :eek: (like I said, 4 or 5 days now)
From what I've been reading, it sounds kind of like varicocele, but I haven't felt the oft-described 'bag of worms', though I haven't really gone looking for it yet.
I've done a couple 'diagnostic' masturbation sessions and I have no problems with ejaculation or anything.
I see my doctor on the 7th and I'll ask him about it then, any ideas in the meantime?
