Hello, i am a 17 year old virgin and recently, I would say over the course of 2 1/2 days, I have had some pain in my left testicle. It is not constant pain, but lets say if i apply pressure to my testes or if i do activities such as running it will start to hurt. And I don't recall ever being hit down there either. Otherwise, i wont feel anything. I've been reading up on possible problems but a lot of the symptoms are the same for many of them. I really hope its not testicular torsion as some sites said by th 6th hour there's no hope to save it anymore... *shudders*. What could the problem be? It has not become swollen as I have been checking often. And um... it is hanging lower then my right testicle. If... it really has become testicular torsion, god forbid, is there any possible way to tell if the testes has died? Like, anything obvious such as discoloration or swollen scrotum? And if it was dead, should you still be able to feel pain there? I plan on going to see the doctor who specializes in this manner soon, and im verily afraid of the outcome. Could someone please share their opinion on this matter?

  • i've had the same pain... i haven't ran though but when i'm at work when i go to lift somethin heavy or lean it seems to hurt a little bit. Noone from any other forums were very helpful at all so i was think i might just go see a urologist about the proble. I've had the problem for about a week now. have u gone to see a dr. yet? if so what was your outcome?

  • Now hopefully i am not late i recommend to go see your doctor immediately!!!!....i had torsion testicle about 2 yrs ago...i was about 18 yrs old (it happened on my birthday..:P)....three days before i had pain in my left scrotum and it was kinda serious...i mean it would only hurt when i touch it or something...and i went to my family doctor...he said i would be better of going to the Emergency because he has a few speculations and not sure what it could be...there would be a urologist in the emergency room who could take a look at my errr..bat and balls.......i go and wait for over 3 hrs and finally get to see a doctor....did i mention i was vomiting and feeling nausea....KEY SIGNS!!!(yet its not always there)....doctor (not a urologist) took a look and came to the conclusion that it was gas (it was the left scrotum and thus because of the pain it felt like my left abdomen and leg was hurting too) he said i had gas that was why i was vomiting and feeling nausea and due to the vomiting the muscles in my abdomen and leg and scrotum was contracting or something (some bull****)...he tells me to go home and get some rest....3 DAYS LATER!!!... on my birthday my girlfriend comes to see me and asks how i feel (by now i am really embarrased about this issue) i tell her its alright (the pain was unbearable.. and i didn't even took a look at it) my girlfriend doesn't believe me and asks me to show her my thingy ....my now my left scrotum swelled up over 200%..it was as big as an apple...she tells me to go see a doctor FAST...so i drove myself to my family doctor (girlfriend was with me)...i parked the car and when i just got out the car i was hit with this unbearable pain...it was soo bad that i passed out right in front of the clinic...now i am a a big guy about 6'2 and weighs about 220 pounds and my girlfriends about 5'2 she's tiny she tries to hold me up but def is unsuccessful...couple of the people in the clinic saw me and came out the help her (she really needed it lol)...they called 911 and took me in so the doctor could take a look..at the first look the doc knew it was twisted testicle i regained consciousness by now..and he started to yell at me because he did tell me 3 days ago that it was serious and he thought i didn't take it seriously....next thing i was being rushed to the emergency room in the ambulance with everything the siren and lights and all....(we are talking about my manhood after all) spends another hour cuz the frigging doctor is not sure if its twisted testicle and he asks me stay in observation for the night...but then for some reason he decides to call the visiting urologist from UK (def a god send) to take a look.....she comes in (thats right its a SHE fresh outta school and quite hot too)...she immediately tells the nurse to wheel me to the nearest surgery room and asks me to fill the form ON THE WAY!!!...i was fully drugged and surgery was successful..it was a medical miracle because they could save the testicle...usually it dies off in 10 -12 hrs...but mine was just starting to change colour after 3 DAYS!!...don't know to be impressed or scared...lol.....and thats my story...now because i waited so long and the didn't remove it but instead repaired it.....it took me about 3 weeks to actually go back to school...mainly because it was quite serious...now if that friggin doctor knew what he was doing...i would have had the surgery 3 days ago and wouldn't be so complicated...everyone including the hospital staff was telling me to find out the doc that diagnosed me three days ago and SUE HIS **s!!!...well being the nice guy i am...i didn't...thats it..my frightfully true story,,

  • I just posted this same thing to someone else's thread of the same question, but still is a possible for you too (besides too much bouncing from boxers). It could be something that is just temporary if it came on suddenly. Another thing that I can think of is a condition called vericocele. This happens when the veins in your sack dialate a lot (fill up w/ blood) and can cause soreness (usually happens on only one side). Have you checked your while standing up or sitting down? Try checking yourself while standing and see if you feel any soft veiny stuff (w/ some cases, can feel like small worms). This condition often worsens from physical activity.Also, did you get "excited" recently and not able to release? This can cause soreness down there for a while. Definitely keep an eye, or finger rather, on it.

  • the same thing just happened to me, i got a little "excited" earlier and didn't get a release. so i got home and "released", but then i felt a pain in my right testicle, completely out of nowhere! it went away but i can still feel it if i touch it the right way. since it involves my balls, i got worried that something terribly wrong was going to happen (naturally) and i read about testicular torsion, i was really worried but considering the fact im not in agonising pain by any means i think i'm going to be ok. the thing is though that i've been having on again off again battles with epididymitis (no fun) so i'm probably gonna see the doctor and just mention tonights event.

  • Guys, Testicular torsion is not a Slight pain, it's extremely painful, it might start as a dull pain but within minutes it will turn into pain like you have never seen. I was operated from Testicular torsion, at age 14 and I am now 47. An yes, I still play in Stereo. As always you should see an Urologist for a professional opinion of your individual case. If you have testicular torsion you wouldn't even be able to read this posting.

  • I'm 15 and unfortunately ive experienced testicular torsion let me tell u its not pleasant... it started off with just a slight random pain in right testicle maybe every 3-6 months.. i thought that it was just natural and that testicle was sitting slightly higher than the left one which again i thought was normal... then one morning i woke up in an incredible amount of pain and feeling like i was ganna throw up, got rushed to hospital by parents, whilst embarrasing i did not care due to the amount of pain i was in, i got operated on and testicle was saved, they promised me that it wud never happen again.. but the slight pain has returned after being smashed in the testicles by a ball a few months ago... im now really worried coz i really dont want to go through it again less than a year after 1st operation.ohh and if u have pain i advise tell someone... yes i no its embarrasing but cmon id rather that then losing one or both of my testes wudnt u?

  • I have this exact same thing, and am really freaking out about it.... well not for a good reason really, cause it isn't torsion. i think our problem(s) might be something called a varicocele..... something where the tube attached to the testicle has a mass on it, that feels like a bag of worms(?) I seem to have this, but am nervous about telling someone, chances are I will tomorrow as it can supposedly result in infertility...

  • Hello everyone,I'm leaving this message to inform, especially younger men and boys, to IMMEDIATELY seek professional help of a urologist, even if you experience the slightest pain in one of your testicles.My husband (he's 22 years old) felt a SLIGHT pain in his right testicle. We didn't seek help until the day after and the doctor said it was an inflammation, but referred us to a urologist. We were able to go and see the urologist the NEXT DAY.Despite the pain not being severe and my husband not nautious he had testicular torsion. He had to undergo surgery immediately and we were told he might lose one testicle and maybe both if the other had problems too.It was a miracle that my husband had been walking with a testicular torsion for over 48 hours and not lose a testicle...it was only twisted halfway and some blood was still flowing to his testicle.However, this is a warning: even if the pain is slight...see a urologist. Don't go by internet to diagnose yourself and rely on a urologist before relying on a doctor. The urologist is a specialist that knows a lot more on this area.

  • Testicular torsion can start many ways. Either a dull pain which gradually gets worse or a very sudden pain which is instantly excruciating.I was 11 years old when it happened to me at approx 4:30am one monday morning. I was fast asleep and I just felt this strange movement and suddenly I was in agony.Despite this I was sent to school for 3 days and on the Thursday I was eventually taken to see the doctor who diagnosed it instantly and packed me off to the hospital in an ambulance. 3 hours later I under went emergency surgery (after having many doctors and student doctors examine me - avoid this at all costs as it's excruciatingly painful).I was lucky in that despite almost 4 days passing my testicle had been saved just in time. I'll admit the stress was the most nauseating part of it due to the constant adrenaline rush when I got to the hospital but before that I didn't feel any other symptoms other than the pain. After the operation I was very sore for a week but the pure pain relief was incredible and its something I can never forget to this day.It's far worse than any tooth ache, it's far worse than being kicked in the balls and its almost crippling. On the other hand once you've experienced this kind of pain everything else is pretty painless in comparison (with the exception of injections!).If you experience ANY unusual pain in either or both testicles SEE THE DOCTOR or emergency department ASAP.

  • hey, this is kinda random but important, dont keep you laptop on ur lap for a long time. Due to multiple signals and waves the laptop can cause problems in genitals, such as pain or dramatically decreased sperm count.
