Heavy feeling around my left testicle and groin?

Hi guys, So basically I don't have major pain just a slight dull ache and weird feeling like pressure or a slight heavy feeling around my left testicle and groin area.

slight pain in my left leg (don't know whether they are connected) and also the pressure type feeling radiates into my lower abdomen on the left and hip (I've been told pain with testicles radiates up to lower abdomen and hip/back).

I've done the self examination numerous times and found no abnormal lumps on my testicles. The only thing I can feel is the spermatic cord feels slightly swollen and a little bit more sensitive than the right one, it's not much more painful to the touch than my right one, it's mainly just that I can feel this pressure/heavy feeling.

Doctor is out of the question at the moment so can anyone who has had this or similar or knows anything about it PLEASE give me some help on what it is or what you think it might be?

Thankyou, Daniel.

Re: Heavy feeling around my left testicle and groin?

SYMPTOMS I HAVE:

Slight dull ache around testicle, groin, left leg area.

Slightly swollen and sensitive spermatic cord (cord connected to the testicle).

A feeling or pressure of heaviness around groin, testicle, abdomen and hip area.

Slight stinging/burning type sensation in the spermatic cord and up near where it goes up into my torso area.

and maybe a slight bit of excess fluid around testicle.

SYMPTOMS I DON'T HAVE:

No abnormal lumps on testicles or spermatic cord.

No loss of appetite.

No Nausea.

No BAD pain.

From what I have read It sounds like I have some sort of infection, maybe bacterial. Anyone know what this might be?

My guess would be epididymitis. Caused either from bacterial infection, std, or congestion from vasectomy. You can try warm epsom salt soaks. Nothing to screw around with. Go see a doctor.

Re: Heavy feeling around my left testicle and groin?

Also, try wearing tight underwear to get some support under your boys. A lot of guys find that one simple thing to be very helpful.

Re: Heavy feeling around my left testicle and groin?

Hi yeah thanks, I'd say it is bacterial because I haven't had sex and I have not had a vasectomy so yeah, it is also slightly more of a burning sensation now in the spermatic cord.

Will probably go to the doctors tomorrow and I'm guessing he will prescribe me some anti-biotics, question do you know whether the doctor will want to physically exam down there or just ask me to do a urine test?

Re: Heavy feeling around my left testicle and groin?

Wow man.. I'm having the same problem right now. Except nothing feels swollen and I don't have any burning sensation. Its been happening on and off for a couple days but now its a pretty steady pain. Nothing to bad just kind of annoying. And I can't tell but it might be getting worse in the left testical or it might just be because I'm thinking about it to much and my heads messing with me. Could it be the same thing or something different?

Re: Heavy feeling around my left testicle and groin?

Have you felt for lumps, a lump you don't want to feel will be hard, pea size and painless.

Could be similar to mine because in the early stages (few weeks ago) I didn't feel burning but now I do.

And yes your mind will worry you so try to ignore that, I'd suggest just go to the doctor, if you don't feel lumps I wouldn't be too worried, probably just an infection treatable by antibiotics, or even if there is a lump there is a big chance it is just a cyst, even the worst case and it was Cancer, testicle cancer has only something like a 5% mortality rate, and that would be leaving it forever without treatment.

Re: Heavy feeling around my left testicle and groin?

Yeah just checked again. No lumps... I wish I could go to a doctor right now, but I just don't have the money. I'm not sure if this would matter at all but about a week or so ago I went from wearing only briefs to wearing boxers. Is it possible that something Could have happen from the change? It has been a week or two since so I'm not sure if it would matter now... Its probably not the best decision but I might wait a day or two, on going to the doctor. Just to see if it gets worse or some of your other symptoms appear, because I can't go to the doctor unless its really serious.

Well I can't see that having a major impact no, If you can go in a day or two do it, if you did have a lump id say go now but if there is no lumps then you should be alright but I'd still go in two days or so if you can.

Any doctor worth his salt will want to examine you.

Changing from briefs to boxers can cause the exact problem you are describing. I know because it happened to me. Change back to briefs, wait a week, and see if it goes away. If it is still there, go see a doc.

Re: Heavy feeling around my left testicle and groin?

Just an update:

I went to the doctor today, he examined my groin and testicles, he felt no lumps and no major swelling, he thinks it might be Epididymitis. He prescribed me some antibiotics and told me to get a urine sample for him.

He also did the cough test where he felt around different areas of my groin and told me to cough, he said on the left side he felt a bit of an impulse, but he didn't seem overly concerned about it, he said to get the urine sample in and take the antibiotics and if it hasn't cleared up within a week to come back and he might do an ultrasound.

Re: Heavy feeling around my left testicle and groin?

I went back to the briefs for the day it felt pretty good... but now that I'm trying to fall asleep the pain is extremely bad. So unless I actually fall asleep and feel alright in the morning, I am definitely going to the doctor tomorrow.
