Thank you for the query.

Masturbation is normal and very very often behavior. Healthy male person needs to unload sex drive either with his partner of with masturbation. So do not treat is as an addiction. And do not blame yourself for masturbating. About 80% does masturbate.
Testicle pain when associated with ejaculation, can be caused by variocele as during the ejaculation, blood flow through testicles increases and so does through enlarged veins.
Other reason of testicle pain which should be ruled out are testicle inflammation, tumor, inguinal hernia.
The best way to do that is to perform blood work, urine analysis and testicle ultrasound. You should visit urologist for physical examination.

Hope this will help. Feel free to ask further questions.

Even i said dat right testicle slightly swollen compared to Left, why?

I have understood your question very well. Please, do not look the problem in masturbation as this is physiologic, normal, regular habit. For your body there is no difference between the masturbation and regular intercourse, not difference at all. Masturbation can not be the reason of such symptoms.
You have mentioned that only one testicle is painful and swollen and my answer were based on this information. So once again, one swollen testicle and pain in this one testicle can be caused by variocele (this disease does not always affects both testicles in the same time, usually it is one testicle). Infection can also affect only one testicle.
When you do ejaculate, testicles do excrete one ingredient of the sperm (spermatozoons). When the testicle is inflammated, it will give pain. Sperm contains also other ingredients from many glands (including prostate), and it can also give pain in one testicle.
But all this is only a theory. As I am unable to perform physical examination of your testicles, I kindly ask you to visit your doctor and have some tests. Only that way you will be certain what causes your pain. Testicles ultrasound, urine analysis should be the first tests performed. If no findings, you should visit urologist. Sperm bacteriologic tests might be also necessary.

Hope this will help. Feel free to ask further questions.
