Pain in testicle after getting kicked. Anything to worry?

My brother and me were fighting and he kicked me in the testicles. It hurt for 2 days. I iced it and kept pressure on it and the pain went away. Now a week later, my right testicle seems to be in a little pain and not the same size as the other. Like I said, the pain is not intense, I just want to make sure that this does not lead to anything serious.

Hello,

Thanks for posting on HCM,

You obviously have gone through a blunt testicular injury and it could be benign with no severity and might require no medical attention. But the fact that after a while you started having pain, may require further medical examination. A rare type of testicular trauma, called testicular rupture, occurs when the testicle receives a direct blow or is squeezed against the hard bones of the pelvis. This injury can cause blood to leak into the scrotum. In severe cases, surgery to repair the rupture (and thus save the testicle) may be necessary. If pain and swelling persist, then it is best you go see your primary care physician who can examine you and do a testicular doppler ultrasound.

hope this helps
