With inputs from Dr.Vedalatha Kakani, General Physician
– Sudden pain in right testicle or left testicle can occur due to an underlying condition or an injury. Hence, it is important to get your symptoms assessed by a urologist to address the testis pain reason.
– Besides injury, other causes of testicular pain include epididymitis, bacterial/ viral infection, hernia, kidney stones, a twisted testicle (torsion), mumps, and more. In rare cases, testicle pain and swelling can be caused by cancer.
– If you experience sudden testicular discomfort or pain in one testicle, consult a urologist to get it diagnosed immediately. The doctor will perform a physical examination and will ask questions to understand your symptoms better. They will also recommend other lab tests for a thorough analysis.
– Depending on the diagnosis, the doctor will recommend testicular pain treatment options accordingly.
