    Dull Ache in left Testicle and Groin

    Hi guys,

    Was wondering if any one on here can help diagnose my problem.

    I've done done weight traing now for about 3 years with no injurys. Nothing serious anyways. For 4 weeks now i've had a slight mild pain in my left testicle and my groin area. Not exactly in the groin area but just around the top line of the pubic area at the left corner. i only feel it at certain times eg. like when im laying down flat and i raise my self to sit up i would feel a slight pain in my groin area. My left testicle would sometimes be mildly throbbing. Like a dull ache.

    Both pains are not extreme at all i dont need painkillers or anything like that, its just an annoyance and the feeling of i no something is just not quite right.

    I've been to the doctor he doesnt seem to no what is going on down there he says everything seems fine. He put me on a course of antibiotics. I completed the full course and it still feels the same. Also my bloodtests have come back all clear. The docter is sending me for a scan for further checks :S

    A friend of mine told me that he once had similar symptoms and that his sciatic nerve was causing the pain in both regions. But im not so sure as i have looked online about that and the sciatic nerve is ment to cause pain in the legs also but this doesnt cornern me.

    I havent trained since ive been feeling these pains. Totally frustrated. Can anyone please shed any light on my condition as i await a date for the scans..

    many many thanks

    Do you feel this pain while doing anything?, anything make it better or worse? do you feel a bulge small or large while lying flat or when sitting up. explain the pain in your testicle, is relieved at all if you lifted your testicle up? is there warmth or any extra fluid in your testicls. Feel free to PM me to talk further. What you are describing sound kind of similar to a small hernia, however you doc should have been able to diagnose that with a proper physical exam, what type of scans are you being sent for testicular ultra sound etc.

    See a Sports Medicine doc.

    Possibly sportsman hernia, if you believe in such things.

    Most probably a hernia but it is also possibly cancer related although cancer might not be the likely choice. best to check it out. A friend of mine had a problem one day after we were lifting weights and realized his left testicle was hard as hell after feeling pain for a day or two. Turned out he had to get it removed on a count of testicular cancer.

    But seriously should see a doctor, most probably hernia related.

    The doctor felt down there for lumps etc and i have also done a good search down there for lumps and bumps. Doctor feels there is no sign of a hernia. The testicular pain is very mild and its like a mild throbbing senstation.Pain no different if i lift it or not. No extra fluid everything looks normal.

    While the doctor was feeling my testicle for and signs of irregularity there was a spot of the bag he touched and squeezed that was very sore. It wasnt the actual testicle it was the bag. A long story short he said that it is most likley a cyst and that not to be worrying about cancer as cancer usually doesnt carry any pain. Where as i was feeling pain. The pain just comes and goes at different times. Random. Its not there all the time.

    He is sending me to the hospital for a scan of the whole region down their. that is all he said. He didnt mention ultrasonic sound or anything like that. Just a scan.

    Also im 26 years old.

    I appreciate all your thoughts guys.

    Make an appointment with a urologist. Might just be something like epididimytis . . . I've had that twice and the symptoms are very much the same. Not a big deal if that is the case--all you can do really is take ibuprofen and take it easy for awhile (sometimes they treat with antibiotics based on what my Dr. told me the last time). But definitely get checked out by a urologist, you don't want to mess around with pain down there at all.

    Thanks for your comment. I have already completed a course of antibiotics but the pain is still the same. Antibiotics didnt do any good at all. Which worries me a little.

    They never gave me antibiotics for mine . . . my urologist just commented that sometimes they prescribe them for epididimytis. The only thing I did for mine both times was Advil. So I wouldn't necessarily be worried about the antibiotics not doing anything. Definitely get that appointment made though!

    Probably not epididimytis going by the 4 weeks in duration and no signs of infection, also the pain of epididimytis would be helped some by lifting the testicles. Your right cancer lumps are almost always painless, the fact you have soreness/pain is a good sign in that respect. possibly a small indirect hernia that traveled in the inguinal canal into your scrotum, cyst is a good possibility or maybe something like a hydrocele. Your probably going to get a CT of the abdomen/pelvis and a testicular ultra sound to see whats going on rule out a bunch of things.

    Left Testicular Pain, Lower Left Abdominal Pain, Left Leg Pain

    Hi my I'm 22 from Toronto. LISTEN to ME! I had my surgery last night.

    Epididymitis - Orchitis - Testicular Torsion almost have the same symptoms.

    Mine was Testicular Torsion.

    I felt the pain on September 19, 2012 early in the morning about 4 am. I thought I was going to die of the pain, I was trying to control it cause I don't wanna go to the hospital. the pain subside couple of hours later but it still hurt, affecting your Left testicle having inflammation, Left leg affected because of the pain, and lower left abdominal. after 24 hours the pain did not totally go away, so I decided to go to emergency, I waited for a total of 6 hours (blood test, Urine) then a doctor checked me out and trying to twist my testicle which is painful, then he sent me to that Ultrasound expert took me 20min to finish that then they found out that it was a "Testicle Torsion" - this an emergency which should be brought to the hospital immediately for surgery, no blood flowing in the left testi thats causing the inflammation. Now, they told me that I need immediate surgery. The Urologist expert talked to me about the things can happen

    -To save the testicle which has a very slim chance., a testicle can only live for 6 hours without blood. mine was 36 hours before the operation

    -To Remove the dead testicle if has no choice left. ( you can still have babies/ sperm produce using the right 1, it's just weird you have 1. Then he will suggest about a Comestic thing which can replace your loss testicle, i think silicon or whatever that is, just for display purpose.

    The operation took me 45 minutes, it was cool cause they put me into sleep that i didn't noticed. When I woke up I was in the recovery room with a nurse guarding me. When my feeling was a little bit ok they transfered me to a room and sent home after 8 hours of rest.

    by the way my testicle was not removed, A miracle happened but I will go back to the Expert in a week to check it out. if it hurts again they have to take it out, and praying that it would not.

    ADVICE: SWOLLEN/INFLAMMATION of testicle is a time sensitive case! When you feel it go to the emergency room before losing things.

    I hope this helped you guys! Good luck!

    if you have questions you can email me to dpcandazo@yahoo.com - willing to help you out but going to the HOSPITAL not CLINIC in this case would be the best. cause in clinics results are slow it will take you day! so LISTEN to me.

    My left epididymis is bigger than my right and more solid. I sometimes get a dull ache in that region from time to time, but not consistent. Also, I sometimes get a small bump at the bottom of the epididymis where it connects to the testicle at the bottom. This freaks me out, but them 5 mins later it seems to go away. Is this just fluid moving around in the tube? My left also doesn't hang as low as the left is that matters?

    Some of these symptoms mentioned come from kidney stones. Turned out to be my problem for this, it can cause seepage and blood from tip also. Potassium Citrate, more water in my training regimine. Comes back every so often with poor lifestyle choices or a lot of sweating.

    I too am experiencing almost the exact same symptoms and would greatly appreciate any information as to what this is. I went to a sports doctor, but he felt it was inconclusive. Mine was actually caused from lifting (weighted lunges) and I'm not sure how to heal this thing....

    Hi guys, I've had this exact problem in my right testicle for seven months now. Registered just to comment.

    I'm 25 and had been hitting the gym and practicing yoga regularly for over a year when I first experienced discomfort. Since, I've had an ultrasound, been to two different urologists, had my prostate checked, taken as much as three weeks off from exercise and been on four different types of medication (for inflammation, for infection and a muscle relaxant) and have experienced no substantial relief.

    The ultrasound came back clear, so the suspicion until the latest round of meds was epididymitis or an ascendeding testicle (most common in young boys). Those antibiotics did decrease the pain when I'd squeeze the bottom of the testicle, but when I'd hit the gym -- or even run to catch the bus -- it wouldn't take long to come right back. Even when that particular pain is absent, I still get throbbing sensations at the top of the testicle or temporary sensations like the entire testicle is dislodged.

    Now, I wait for my follow-up appointment with the urologist in five weeks. Great.

    In the meantime, I can give some tips that have provided comfort over the months and helped me maintain a percentage of my workout:

    - Wear as tight-fitting underwear as possible. The more support for the sack, the less pain I feel.

    - Take wide stances in every activity. Instead of running, use an elliptical and push outward with your feet. Also, lots of standing stretches require you put your feet together -- always modify to a hip-width stance. No cross-legged positions.

    - When lifting, take as many seated positions as possible. No more standing bicep curls or shoulder shrugs. I find anything that pulls the core up from a standing position causes immediate discomfort.

    - If the dull pain lasts more than a minute, stop your workout. You know your body best, but I find there's a certain intensity to the dullness in my upper right testicle that can just get too much. Don't push it past that point. When I first pushed too far, my testicle and lymph node became so swollen I could barely sit down for a week.

    - Limit the effects of gravity. This is kind of related to the tight-fitting underwear tip, but when you're not wearing underwear (i.e. during sex) avoid putting yourself in positions where you're really hanging, i.e. military position. The added blood flow of arousal and muscular strain gives me some of my worst pains. However, if I have sex from a standing position I feel barely any pain at all.

    - Talk to people about your problem. This ****ing sucks. It feels like there's no solution and it holds you back from enjoying physical activities to the fullest. Share your frustration with someone who understands, because there's enough unnecessary pain and pressure inside of you already!

    Good luck, guys. I'll keep you updated if anything improves after my next appointment.
