The testicles are extremely sensitive and are prone to pain for several reasons. The pain can arise from minor injuries, infection or swelling of the testicles, or even abdominal pain. Testicular pain may be acute if it is sudden and for a limited time period. It can be chronic if it is constant or intermittent and can last for months.


Ages affected: Men and boys, adolescents to elderly
