Doctor :   From the brief description of your symptoms, I can think of two possible reasons for your symptoms.
Doctor :   1. Orchitis - a condition caused by inflammation of the testis.
Doctor :   This can occur commonly due to infective causes - any viral infections or urinary infections.
Doctor :   2. The second possible cause may be the inflammation of the structures supporting the testis.
Doctor :   Testis is supported by various ligaments and soft tissue which can get strained due to heavy abdominal exercises.
Doctor :   Both these conditions are benign conditions, in the sense you need not worry about them.
Doctor :   They do not cause any complications or pose any dangers.
Doctor :   I shall suggest you the following measures.
