: : Yesterday i noticed a annoying pain in my right testicle, sorta behind the testicle. It doesn't really hurt that much but it is a nagging pain that feels like it does a few minutes after being kicked in the balls. The pain lasted for 2 or 3 hours and came back at night and today...any advice.

You could have epididimitis. Its an infection much like a bladder infection but if left untreated it could cause sterility from scarring to the epididimus. Get it checked out. Usually cured with antibiotics.
: Probably nothing to worry about, however, if pain persists for more than a couple of days, becomes persistent or suddenly changes to a sharp intense pain see a doctor immediately. This type of pain indicates that the testilce has an interupption in its blood supply and tissue death can occur within just a few hours.
