Swollen and painful left testicle

I developed pain in the left testicle and took notice that it was swollen.
I drank a quart of green tea and upon urinating it was blood red, for one time only, but the pain had subsided.
At this point I noticed a swelling at the top of my sack...looks like veins or something.
Since then I have had pain on and off and the swelling comes and goes,but I notice that the swelling at the top of the sack that looks like veins is still there and particulary noticable after a shower.

I am 59 years old.

Could this be a varicocele or maybe related to the prostate ?

I have a doctors appointment in 4 more days.

Re: Swollen and painful left testicle

I had a simililar incident, but it was not as severe as yours. It is best to talk to a urologist. It could be a number of things but im not a doctor, so i cant tell you what it could be. It might be nothing, although i doubt it. Im glad to see that you're going to see a doctor. It sounds serious enough to at least be inspected.

Let me know how you do and I'm here for support.

Re: Swollen and painful left testicle

Went to the doctor and he gave me Cipro for 2 weeks which helped, but the varicocele is still there...he thought perhaps infection caused it.
Guess I will be making another appointment.

Thanks for the reply.
