Pain in scrotum area after laproscopic hernia surgery. Small lump, pain in left testicle. Is it normal?

HI, I am 24yrs old male. I recently had laparoscopic inguinal hernia surgery done on 14th dec 2012 which was on my left side on 14th Dec 2012. Since then I am having pain in my scrotum area especially in my left testicle . And I can also feel some small lump of mass over the left testicle. It pains when I touch it. It also pains while sitting and standing from the chair or when its rubbed by my undergarments. I was told to wear tight underwear by the doctor and I am following that. I need to know whether it is normal after this surgery and will be ok after some time or is it some serious issue? Please advise me as necessary. Thanks in advance.

Thanks for your query.Based on the facts that you have posted it appears that you have pain in your Left testicle after Laproscopic surgery for Lt inguinal Hernia.
It is common to have inflammatory reaction in Epididymis and Testicle after hernia surgery. Please take pain killers like Brufen 400 mg twice daily. It will get resolved over a period of time.It is available over the counter of medical store.
