Hi Doctor, I have a pain in my left testicle
As of now the pain is not that severe, but it pains when I touch it.
Here the local physician said before sonograpy that it should get cured after using some Antibiotics
the pain reduced when i was taking antibiotics
but when stopped it started paining again
request you to please suggest with this condition
May I know your age?
Besides the pain what other symptoms do you have?
it just pains when i touch it , or while wearing clothes
Do you find any changes on the skin of scrotum?
Is it on one side or both side?
No, i checked for that but there is nothing like that
its on left side only
Have you tested your urine and semen?
Are you there?
urine and semen no
Let me brief you.
doctor had only asked to have a sonography
You described a slightly discomforting situation.
The pain may be arising from the testis / genital organs
or from the surface (skin)
without an opportunity to examine it is difficult to confirm which of the part is causing the ache.
Since you met a doctor and felt better after a course of antibiotic
it is probably related to infection.
Infections of the genital organs take time to resolve. However it is slightly difficult to treat also.
In my opinion, I think you should consult an urologist
who can examine you and figure out if there are any elements of infection persisting.
If all infection has cleared and the skin area is unaffected, it may take some more days before you feel better.
Therefore consult an urologist.
Have you followed what I suggested?
Do you have any questions?
yes, one more
what causes these kind of infections ?
If you been active sexually (involved in unprotected sexual intercourse) it may be related.
The tests can provide directions about where it may have come from.
yes, i am married and me and my wife are planning to have a baby
Do not be worried about the cause.
If you were not involved with unknown partners, these are unlikely to be from XXXXXXX causes.
Consult an urologist. After physical examination and investigations a proper solution can be planned.
no thats not the case..
Do you have any other query.
how to find a good urologist in the city
I am from Pune, can you suggest any names ?
I am from Bangalore and I do not know of urologist at Pune. You can visit the nearest multidisciplinary hospital such as Apollo / fortis.
or a medical college hospital
You will find a good urologist there.
Alternatively, if you are unable to find them,
that sounds good.
you can write to the customer care team of HealthcareMagic to help you find one.
Is there any thing else?
No, thats it
