Hi,

Thanks for posting your query

Testicular torsion occurs if the testes rotates from the spermatic cord that is attached from the testicle to the abdomen.As the blood supply is reduced it causes pain.

Torsion can occur due to any injury or trauma.If while masturbating there was any severe rotation then possibility is there.Symptoms are severe pain which may or may not be accompanied by swelling,nausea,fever,abdominal pain.

Sometimes if during masturbation ejaculation is incomplete that can cause dull lasting pain due to inability to ejaculate.

If you have severe pain consider visiting a Physician earliest for physical examination to rule out torsion and get the appropriate treatment.

Hope this answers your query.I will be available for follow up query.

Hi,

Thanks for the follow up query.

In a normal masturbation this usually does not happen if you are following it in a comfortable position and avoiding any sudden force which can cause this to occur.

Masturbation should be practiced only when excited as first of all it can divert your attention and concentration from certain other important things and secondly while doing intercourse you might not be excited as required as it would be habit forming.

If you are masturbating frequently then ejaculation might be incomplete at times which can cause dull pain. If you would avoid doing it daily then ejaculation will also be adequate.

Hope this answers your query.

Wish you a good health.

Regards.
