Testicular pain is a feeling of discomfort or pain that can be felt in one or both testicles. In some cases, the pain can begin in the groin or abdomen and then radiate or spread down into the testicles. If you are experiencing any chronic or long term pain in your testicles then you should seek advice from a medical professional.

  • Causes of testicular pain
Pain in the testicles can be caused by a number of things. The testicles are extremely sensitive organs and pain or discomfort can be caused by the slightest injury. Below are some possible causes of testicular pain, although the cause cannot always be identified if the pain is only temporary.

  • Kidney stones
Kidney stones are tiny solid deposits that are formed inside the kidneys which then need to be passed, usually through urinating. If the cause of your testicular pain is kidney stones then you will also have noticed the pain start in your back or sides just below you ribs which then spreads down to your abdomen and groin.

  • Inguinal hernia
An inguinal hernia occurs in the body when soft tissue that is usually part of the intestines has torn through the wall in your lower abdomen. This bulge is most painful when coughing, lifting objects or bending over. Although hernias are not usually dangerous, they will not go away on their own. You should see a doctor if you think you have a hernia.

  • Urinary tract infections
Many men believe that they cannot get urinary tract infections, as they are more common in women due to the position of their urethra, however men can get them too. A urinary tract infection occurs when the urethra becomes infected with bacteria. UTIs can be annoying and painful but can go away with treatment, which should begin at the first signs of a UTI because if the infection spreads to the kidneys then more serious problems can occur. UTIs can be easily treated with antibiotics, but home remedies can also get rid of milder cases.
