Thanks for posting your query.

Stress can not lead to pain in testis.

There could be various reasons for having pain in testis.

Some common ones are
1. Infection
2. Trauma
3. Pressure on testis due to any reason like tight clothes, prolonged seating etc.
4. Infection any where in tract.

I do not see any reason for worry. Just avoid wearing tight clothes. Maintain good posture while seating. You can take analgesics like tablet paracetamol for pain relief.

In most of the cases, this kind of minor discomfort goes on its own in couple of days.

Please visit your family doctor in case the pain increases, there is swelling or other complaints develops.

I hope this helps and clarify your concern.

Please write again if you have something more to ask.

In case you do not have further query, please accept the answer.

Wishing you good health.

Yes Dr, it can be a cause of my tight boxer shorts I wore yesterday. Also I travel 100 kms everyday in car, maybe I should see for couple of days and wear comfortable cloths and seating.
Thanks a lot.
