    Suggest treatment for pain in the testicle

default
Posted on Tue, 11 Jul 2017 in Men's Health
Question: Hi, got home from work two days ago and started having pain in my right testicle. I read that it could be an infection and started taking some penicillin I had from the dentist. After two days the swelling and pain is worse. It doesn't hurt to urinate and feels much better as long as I'm laying down. Is there anyway for me to tell what's going on and if I should see a doctor or if it will clear up?
