What causes pain and swelling in the testicles?

default
Posted on Wed, 25 Oct 2017
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.
