Brief Answer: Minor injury during exercise- probably------------ Detailed Answer: Welcome to the forum. Three common causes of testis pain are----- 1. Torsion of the testis. 2. Infection called Epididymo- orchitis. 3. Injury. I rule out the first one as it is common in the younger age group. The second cause usually has associated swelling. The third cause is likely due to minor injury at exercise. At present, scrotal support in the form of tight underwear and mild pain killers should help. You need to consult when--- 1. The pain increases or persists. 2. Associated swelling / fever or urinary symptoms. Hope this helps, Kindly write back for doubts if any, Truly,
