Detailed Answer:

Thank you for the query.

If this pain were associated with lifting heavy object, scrotal hernia would be the most probable reason. In such case you should have enlarged lump close to the testis which. This lump should be more visible when standing and coughing and less visible when lying down.
Other possible reasons of your symptoms are testis inflammation or epididymis. Testis torsion should be ruled out if the pain is really strong.
I suggest you to do not wait with it and consult your doctor as soon as possible. Testis ultrasound should be done.

Hope this will help. Feel free to ask further questions.

my husband has a hernia that has now dropped all the way down into his scrotum . It is a little bigger than a ten.ball, the left one being about the size of a grape. it is quite sore and is really hard inside. Is he in any more danger now that it has dropped down there. If I recall, it seems like one of the Drs. said something to him about this being more dangerous.
