Pain in scrotum / testicle? Help!

Hey guys,


I was just wondering if it was normal to have some pain in your scrotum (Left Side) next to / around you testicle?

I seem to have had this off and on for a year now....Sometimes it hurts after sex, after I orgasm? Anyone else relate?

Also, when my scrotum is tight against my body, my left side of my scrotum seem to stick out more / bulge out more on the left than the right? Should I be concerned?

I have no lumps on my testicals, but right infront of my testicles seem to be these roundish balls...??? Are these supposed to be there? I have one on each side in front of my testicals??? Also, behind my testicles are firmer knots, like tubes....these are in the back behind my testicles? Again, is this normal....? Any feedback would be great! Thanks

Re: Pain in scrotum / testicle? Help!

The roundish balls on your testicles are supposed to be there, they are the epididymis. The firmer knots you mentioned are probably varicose veins, I have them also. The left testicle hangs lower normally in most men and I think the left one is usually more problematic. The varicose veins cause slight pain after intense physical activity and after extended standing. Usually it goes away in few hours. If these veins are too large, there is a chance of low sperm count and fertility problems.

If the pain is persistent and localized to the epididymis, it may be due to an inflammation (epididymitis). You have to see a doctor to clear it. It is recommended that you go see a doctor in any sort of discomfort in testicles. The doctorís examination is usually not too invasive. Good luck.
