Brief Answer:
How severe is this pain?

Detailed Answer:
Hi and thank you so much for this query.

I am so sorry to hear about this hurting testicle that you have reported. If the pain is minimal and not very severe, this may be related to position and it is not totally unexpected. I will say put on a supportive underwear and avoid any further manipulation. Take Tylenol for relief and all will be okay. However, if there is a severe pain, I will recommend that you visit the ER for evaluation instantly. However, at your age, testicular torsion is very unlikely. Can you please tell me for how long this pain has been going on?

I hope this helps. I wish you well. Feel free to ask for more information and clarifications if need be. Above all, thanks for using our services.

Brief Answer:
Stress could add but should not be regarded as primary cause!

Detailed Answer:
HI,

Stress could add to this and should not be regarded as primary cause. It would be good to examine you fully and rule out any possible causes before settling with stress as a possible aggravating factor.

I wish you well.
