Detailed Answer:
Hi and welcome.
Most common this is epididimitis which is inflammation of testicle site to bacterial or viral infection. Other causes are torsion or STD. but torsion would have some other symptoms. I suggest treatment with antibiotics and avoid sexual intercourse for week. Wish you good health. Regards
