i will explain you the various causes, to help you decide the further course of investigations and treatment

inflammation of the ducts through which sperm leaves the testicle can cause pain and swelling

may i ask if the swelling is in the testicle itself or just above it in the duct?
Doctor :  
this also happens with a urinary tract infection that results from an inability to empty the bladder because of an enlarged prostate

now coming to various causes of swelling in testicles: Doctor :   1.enlarged veins in the scrotum that carry blood away from the testicles.

Doctor :   i will sugeest you to do a doppler scan for testicles and epeidydimis

which will also pick up vascular causes.

1.Provide support to the scrotum by wearing an athletic supporter.
