Hi,
Welcome to XXXXXXX and thanks for your query.
The symptoms are a little vague, but i will do my best to arrive at a possible diagnosis.
Possible causes are
1. Varicocele - distended veins of the spermatic cord.
2. Early infection of the testis/ epididymis ( epididymo- orchitis).
3. Chronic prostatitis.
Clinical examination includes, abdominal, genital and rectal examination.
Tests needed are Ultrasound scan of the abdomen and the scrotum, urine analysis.
Remedies that would help are.
1. Scrotal support.
2. Pain killers of the muscle relaxant type.
Hope this helps, kindly get back for doubts if any.
Best regards
DR GS

Thank you for your reply. Furthermore, i scheduled a visit with my Dr. in two days, which will probably refer me to a urologist. That being said, can i rule out testicle cancer? I just urinated again, no blood. No vomiting, have a regular appetite. Only issues are feelings of strain in my left testicle, almost like somone is squeezing it, and pressure in my lower abdomen and lower back. Any advice, (ice pack/ heat)Wainting for your reply. Thank you

Hi,
Welcome back.
Cancer presents as painless swelling usually and pain is a late symptom.
It is my last diagnosis, anyway the examination and scan should help.
Home remedies to ease the pain are
1. Warm application for the back and stomach and
2. Ice application for the testis.
Best regards

Hello Dr. I do obviously understand one can not simply get a diagnosis online but simply just helpful insight. That being said, you have not narrowed down to what it could possibly be. As mentioned, no Unusual symptoms but simply more aching. Almost like blue balls but only the left testicle. Somewhat of a sharp (but not excruciating) pain by left groin/abdomen area. Peed 4 times already. No blood in Urin though. Slight lower back tightness. If possible, please narrow it down to two symptoms. Thank you.

Hi
Welcome back.
I am happy that you understand the limitations of this type of answering model.
My first diagnosis is varicocele ( distended veins of the spermatic cord) and second being epididymo-orchitis ( infection of the sperm collecting tubes and testis).
Both will be helped by scrotal support and ice application to the scrotum.
Hope i have helped you. Wish you very well.
Best regards

Earlier this year I noticed a dark brown mark on my scrotum which at first I thought was a bruise. It is painless and completely flat. Looks probably like a liver spot and is about 1cm wide when I stretch/flatten out the skin. If anything the mark has faded rather than gone darker. Could it just be a liver spot or freckle - i am quite a freckled person. I'm 35 years of age.

Thanks

Hello. I am a 14 year old male and I have discovered a rash right in between my scrotum and anus, and there is another one right next to it. I have applied anti-itch cream to get rid of the itch, and I have to do that every couple of hours. It is red and feels rough and dry (until I add the cream). Please advise?

I have genital herpes and recently had unprotected sex with a partner. the next morning i had a rash above my penis and on my thighs. I think this is the beginning of an outbreak. I dont have any lesions or blisters on my penis or scrotum. How likely is it that i passed this virus to her?

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...

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....
