The testicle is the most important sexual organ of a man. It produces sperm and secretes androgen. Do not wait for the pain to come and get the attention of the public. What can cause testicular pain?

1. Testicular pain, scrotum swelling - epididymitis

Around the posterior border of the testis is the epididymis, where sperm is temporarily stored after production. Epididymitis is more common in people around 30 years old. It is mostly due to bacterial infection entering the epididymis through the vas deferens. Generally, urethritis, prostatitis, seminal vesiculitis can occur together.

The location can be unilateral or bilateral, and the attack time can be urgent or slow. You will feel the whole scrotum is red, swollen, hot, sensitive to touch, and burning when you urinate. The scrotal pain was observed when the scrotum was still, but the symptoms were relieved when the scrotum was supine.

For acute epididymitis, the doctor will prescribe some antibiotics to you to relieve the acute pain. But if the acute phase of improper treatment into chronic epididymitis, herbal medicine may be better than antibiotics, such as Diuretic and Anti-inflammatory Pill.

2. Faint pain - varicocele

Varicocele incidence rate accounted for 10% of 30~40-year-old men. 90% of it occurs on the left side, caused by the blood stasis of the spermatic vein, resulting in dilation, tortuosity and lengthening of the venous plexus. You may feel a dull pain, like a small bag of insects into your scrotum, perhaps no sense.

But when standing, the varicocele can be seen or groped for the varicocele. The varicose vein can be seen to be more severe by strenuously bulging the stomach and increasing the abdominal pressure. A few have neurasthenia at the same time. More serious, there will be scrotal drop swelling pain, long-standing back pain, but lying down can be relieved.

Through special examination methods, such as ultrasound diagnosis, infrared contact scrotal temperature measurement, varicocele will be found, and the doctor will determine whether your symptoms need treatment. At this point, it can be closed by injecting drugs or binding it to block the blood vessels. It is a small operation that requires anesthesia for about 30 minutes.

3. Testicular torsion

Testicular torsion can occur from newborn to elderly, but the incidence rate is high in children and 20~25 years old. If you suddenly can not move and feel swelling, tenderness, severe pain on one side of the scrotum, and the pain will spread to the lower abdomen, groin or thigh. Moreover, nausea, vomiting and fever will come in a stream. Be careful. It could be testicular torsion.

Mild testicular torsion pain is very severe at that time, but after a little rest can be quickly reduced, the bandage can carry out general activities. Once hit, touched, pinched, etc., severe pain will occur, and shock will occur in severe cases.

After treatment, doctors should ask you to do routine semen examination to understand the function of testis on the diseased side, which is particularly essential for unmarried men.

4. Testicular trauma

When the testicular injury occurs, there will be swelling and blood stasis locally. Because scrotal skin is flabby, testicular blood is refluxed, after injury, it is easy to cause hematoma and infection. Severe testicular pain, nausea, vomiting, and even fainting or shock occurred.

Generally, it is necessary to sit down or lie down to check for ulceration or external bleeding. If the testes on both sides are symmetrical and without dislocation, they can be supported by broadband to reduce shaking and pain. If there is swelling, cold compress method can be used to control internal bleeding.

Pain in the testicle is rarely caused by testicular cancer. Testicular cancer typically causes a lump on the testicles that's often painless. But if you have any persistent testicular pain, seek medical advice immediately.
