Hi. healthy male, mid 's 20's

I've been exeriencing a little pain in what I think is mainly my left testicle, but sometimes seems to be the right one.

The pain in my left testicle woke me up the other night. shooting pains, but since then it's been quite a dull pain and, like I say, seems to switch around between areas. Hard to tell.

I cant get an appointment until Monday.

From doing a little research:
If it was cancer (naturally my first concern) then I wouldn't be experiencing any pain at all, apparently.

If it was torsion (the other 'bad' one) then i'd be in much much more pain, and my scrotum would be inflamed and discoloured etc

Based on that, am i safe to rule out them 2? is my research correct?

Could it be some sort of groin strain? I play a lot of football.

Could it be just from a basic cold? I've been under the wheather a little recently. Coughing, sneezing, headaches on and off etc.

other thoughts?
