Pain in testicle when I stand

Two days ago I had to stand for a long time, and for the first time I felt a sharp throbbing pain in my right testicle. It would come and go, pain for about 20 seconds, then none for about 10 or 15 seconds, then it would come back. This lasted for about 45 minutes. I went to a place where I was alone, and felt my testicle. I did not feel any lump. I was surprised that it provided some relief to hold my testicle. It was not sensitive to touch, that is, it did not hurt more. Once I was able to sit down, the pain stopped. Now it is 2 days later, there has been no recurrence. However, just now for the first time I am feeling a slight amount of the same pain. It sort of shoots or radiates from my testicle into my ... I'll have to check it out and see if it hurts in my leg or in my body proper. I sit all day at a computer. I rode my bike one time about 2 weeks ago, it was pushing it, I don't get much exercise. I am overweight, 60 year old Caucasian, taking a statin, also recently finished a course of Pen VK for infection in my gums. Non smoker, non drinker, non drug user. No pain when having sex. No other symptoms, no discharge. No possibility of STD. No heavy lifting recently, no injury I know of other than possibly the bike ride, but there were no symptoms during or after the ride. Sometimes I feel that my testicles are larger when I am walking, but when I palpitate them there is no mass or swelling or tenderness.

  • I have seen this kind of pain come from a nerve root radiating pain into the testicle region. It would be from the L5 nerve level. You may have gotten some compression of the nerve root when you stood so long that one day, and it may come and go depending on the position of your back. See a good D.C. and have him check out the possibility of this. It could be disc, or stenosis or other causes.
