Question: I'm experiencing pain in my testicles and large swelling. Do I need to visit the emergency right now or should I wait until the morning. It's painful for me to try to urinate and when I do, it's just a dribble. I recently underwent radiation for prostrate cancer and I am now considered cancer free.

Brief Answer:
Hello. You require evaluation.

Detailed Answer:
Hello dear. I understand your concern. So the reason for testicular swelling could be many like, orchitis, torsion testes, hydrocele or uncommonly a tumor. You will require clinical examination followed by an ultrasonography of testes to.look for the cause. Emergency visit is required if pain is too much.
Thanks and regards

The past couple of days I have felt pain similar to the feeling of the hydrocele, but it is now constant. I am going to get the hydrocele operated on, I was just wondering if this could have turned into something more serious?
