Question: Hi, I feel my left testicle more sensitive than the right one. When I give a small stroke on the left testicle, it hurts more than the right one. Further, I feel some discomfort in the left testicle area after ejaculation. This discomfort spreads into the left leg down to the toe. It feels like a tension in the leg. However, this discomfort gradually disappears with time if I do not ejaculate for next few days. What is my problem? I am going to marry soon. Will this cause any problem future?

Thanks for your query.Based on the facts that you have posted it appears that you have
either Epididymitis or Varicocele.

However final diagnosis can be confirmed only on clinical examination by a qualified Urologist.

If I would be your treating Urologist I would advice you to get fallowing tests done to come to conclusion.
1) Routine Urine Test.
2) Ultrasound Scanning of the scrotum.
3) Colour Doppler study of the scrotum.

Please consult qualified Urologist for clinical evaluation and to get above investigations done if he thinks appropriate.
Further treatment will depend upon the outcome of these tests.

Do not worry there is nothing to be worried about and this problem will get resolved with treatment.

Please feel free to ask if you have any more questions I shall be happy to help you.
Thanks with Regards.

Hi, I'm a 24 year old male now. I have an itch around my genitals where my scrotal sack meets my left leg (as well as on the right side). For over ten years, I've had to use an anti-bacterial cream for it to keep away the itch and the bad smell that comes with it. When I don't use the cream, the area looks like the skin is peeling off, it itches and it smells. The condition has recently come back and isn't going away quickly even though I'm using the cream. What condition is this and what can I do to get rid of it? I really need some help. Thanks!

I am a 17 year old guy who had pain in my left testicle and abdomen about a month ago or a little longer. That pain went away after about 2 weeks but just recently I have noticed consistent discoloring in my scrotum, my left testicle has gotten bigger and is very hard while my right testicle has shrunk and is extremely soft and maybe even mushy. My semen has been coming out chunky, and my nipples are swollen and sore all the time. Please help I'm really worried

Can testicular torsion cause LOW grade pain?

doctor1 MD

Ok, I asked about this yesterday in the main forum. After thinking about it and being a little more clear headed, I decided to put it here in the "ask a specialist." Most of my question yesterday went unanswered. What was answered was very short...

doctor1 MD

I was diagnosed with intermittent testicular torsion 3 years ago and had orchiopexy performed with non absorbable sutures. Before the surgery my testicle would be backwards (180 degrees) 90% of the time or more and I had pain every day from it....
