Pain in the testicle while urination. Vasectomy scheduled. What to do?

Hi there, I ve been having a slight dull ache/pain in my left testicle when I lift my penis to urinate or during intercourse. It s really not a bother most of the time and I ve felt everywhere for a lump but so far nothing. The ache/pain usually lasts for about a week or so and then disappears for a while then comes back. No changes. Happening now for about three months. Not afraid to see the doctor but just though I d look for an answer or possible answer here first. I was going to have a vasectomy this month but put it off because of this issue. Any help would be appreciated! Thanks!

Hello Kevin..
Pain in the testicular region can be attributed to:
1. Trauma
2. Inflammation/infection.
In your post you have not mentioned about any history of trauma.

So an infective or inflammatory cause can be thought of ...such as orchitis or epididymo-orchitis.
Under such condition, you need to take antibiotics along with analgesics under the guidance of your Doctor.
There is nothing to will be fine.
Make sure you take the medications properly.
Also avoid wearing tight fitting underwear or that pressure in the testicular area can be prevented.

Wishing you a Good Health. Let me know if I need to clarify further.
Thanks & take care.
