What causes recurring pain in testicles?

default
Posted on Wed, 23 Jul 2014
Question: I have been having pain in my left testicle off and on for about two day. It started out the first day with constant aching along with pain in my lower left back and a brief bit of pain in my lower left abdomen. The pain went away for about a day and then came back as a dull constant ache after sexual intercourse. There has not been any swelling, discoloration, or fever in the testicle. The pain also seems to move around my groin, sometimes it's lower than my testicle, sometimes higher, but it always ends up back in it. I had this problem several years ago for about 3 months and I never went to the doctor, it just cleared up on its own.

Another doctor answered me yesterday and said it could be torsion but I don't have any symptoms except for pain.

Also, I am able to do the cremasteric reflex test with success.
I forgot to mention that the pain (when it came back) started with a burning sensation when urinating. This resulted in a burning pain in the testicle. That has only happened once. Since then it has been a dull constant ache or just general discomfort.
Could it be a torsion even without swelling, tenderness, fever, nausea, or any of the other symptoms? Even after dealing with the issue for 2 days?
