Hello, my name is Tony, I'm 22 years old, caucasion Male, with a fairly healthy lifestyle. Lately, I've noticed a pain in the region of my left testicle. I do not engange in unprotected or anal sex, and I've only had one partner in the last year and half. Heres the deal...
-I first noticed the pain while streching before a workout. It seemed that with my legs together, standing, when I bend to touch my toes, the pain comes into play. Sort of feels like someone is squeezing my left testicle (guys, i'm sure you know what this feels like)
-There is no pain when urinating.
-No swelling, no lumps or anything of that nature.
-Pain comes and goes, and is never serious.
-Pain seems to be in a "line," that goes from my left testicle, upwards maybe 3 inches or so, then just sort of fades out.
-It gets worse when I sit with my legs together: Sitting with legs spread apart seems to alleviate pain.
Does anyone have any idea what this might be? I've never had health issues before (knock on wood), except for injuries. I'm very nervous, to say the least, and am looking for any and all imput I can get from you knowledgable guys. Thank you for taking the time to read, and help me with my situation.
BTW, I did run a search on this forum, and found one or two things that were sort of close, but nothing that hit the nail on the head. So I appologize up front if this is a repost.
I remember once while coming home from work,and on my way home I went to the gym.A few day's later I got this terrible pain from my left testicle,it was like a sharp pain that went up to my abdomen.I got so bad the next day I was doubled up.
I went straight to the doctor's,and he gave me some very strong antibiotics,there were only 8,but after taking three there was a great improvement.I turned out I had strained myself weight lifting,doing the squats,and somehow I got an infection in the tubes that go from the testes to the abdomen.
It did return years later but that is another story.
No kidding? I work out quite frequently, and I did start to notice this after I got back into running..
Any idea what the medication was called?
Doctor's offices are so busy around here, that I can't get in until the 21st of December (its the 12th today), So I think i'm just going to go to am "Urgent Care" facility and see what they can do for me. I didnt sleep very well last night, as this issue is making it nearly impossible to get comfortable.
Any other input is greatly appreciated, thanks so much!
I can't get into a real doc's office until the 21st of December, so I decided to go to Urgent Care to make sure nothing was wrong that needed immediate attention. I took a couple tests, and they found no infection.
The Dr. was thoroughly confused. He said that in the places he applied pressure, I should have been feeling significant pain, but I wasn't. No matter where he pushed it seemed fine. He seems to think it may be a "Minor Hernia," as he put it. What exactly is a Minor Hernia, and how is it treated??
Do you feel any unusual abdominal muscles movements when you do sit ups or strain them in any way?
I have a hernia. I can feel this little "bloup" when something inside me (muscle?) moves and it feels like to pops through something. Happens when I have to go to the bathroom. Im going for a CT scan next week.
The reason I jumped in here is because of the pain in the testicle. I have that too and at times it can be mind boggling. Such a sharp pain in a place where its not welcome. At first I thought it was related to my messed up lower back but the Dr is convinced its the hernia.
I will try to post back results and get more info. Please do the same.
Well, good news for me! Went to the doctor yesterday, and he said its nothing to worry about. Turns out, I strained a muscle in my groin, and when I did, the muscle contracted significantly. So, any motion I made that would stretch that muscle, was what was causing the pain.
I'd been taking Ibuprofen 600's, then I went to two 200mg (400total), then I just stopped taking it. The pain seems to have subsided, although I will not soon forget this experience.
I'd never been in a position where I could have something seriously medically wrong with me, and I definitely panicked.. There are some things in my life that need to stop doing, in order to avoid health problems in the long run, and I'm going to do my best to avoid as many as possible.
