Thanks for writing. I understand your concern and worry.
At your age, severe pain of this sort can be torsion testis - that is twist of the testis to 360 degrees. Ultrasound is not always accurate.
Kindly see a surgeon or a urologist to get proper advice.
U may be need surgical procedure to fix the testis.
Hope I answered your query. Kindly get back to me for any concern and queries. I am ready to answer. Get well soon.
With best wishes and regards,
DR G Srinivasan.
