i was kicked in the balls 5 days ago. no pain at all till about 4 days later. slightly uncomfortable but no discolour or visible bruising. balls arent really tender. sort of just a dull ache. ive done the reflex test and my scrotum is still reacting. testes both seem to be laying in the same direction. Is this small pain just part of getting over the trauma or could it be torsion?

Hi doctor... Around 3 weeks ago, I got a bruise on the inside of my arm.. Around 5 cm above my wrist. Around 4 hours Prior to the bruise I got a sun tan( which I didn t tan for a long time..) I got really drunk that night and forgot how I got the bruise... But the bruise somehow didn t go away.. Plus there is some light pinkish colorless little dots forming in the middle of the bruise... I wonder what causes this to happen? ( I haven t put on any cream or ointment to the bruise until 3 days ago when I find out the bruise isn t going away although it doesn t hurt.. Plus it formed those tiny dots that doesn t look too pleasing when looking at it closely..) please let me know what might be causing these symptoms... Much thanks... Daryl
