Question ? regarding testicles

ok, I'm posting for my bf, he has been having a problem with his left testicle (sp) and he had a vasectomy about 9 years ago or so, he is 37 years old and hes very tender in that area, and this morning woke up with a pulsating sensation in that area, it was enough to wake him out of his sleep, anyhow was wondering if anyone has experienced this and what this could possibly be thats causing this...maybe scare tissue from the vasectomy??

I know my ex-husband had testicular cancer...although we don't speak at all, so I don't want to ask him...

Thanks for your replies ahead of time...

August 29th 2002 Injured back at work
from August 2002 till late Nov, roller coaster ride with pain etc.
Dec Friday 13th 2002 laid off job.
Dec. 26th pain starts back up again, lasts for 6 weeks before pain got better then turned to sciatic pain for about 10 weeks.
April 1st had MRI.
April 4th MRI read by my doctor, reading L5-S1 herniated disk W/8mm bulge, pressing on nerve in spine.
Doc says I need surgery.
Then I was investigated (pictures & video taped)
Had second opinion Doctor appt. and Workmans comp didn't notify me till the day after the appt. by usa mail. I was ******!
I did go to the appt. on another day, thank god I did, cause it was the icing on the cake at my hearing. I won!
Then had surgery for Laminectomy/Disectomy June 18th 2003.
I also had ALOT of scare tissue, surgery was longer then expected.
now I am over 4 weeks post op.
still get a zing down left leg, but I can walk.

Possibly a twisted testicle? This is when the testicle twists and blood flow is cut off. This is serious enough for a trip to the emergency room if blood flow is not restored. So if the pain is gone now, a visit to his doctor would be a good idea.

Yeah, I think testicular torsion could be a possibility... If there are any reoccurances I would get to a doctor quick... Or like the last guy said, an emergency room.
