What Does Soreness On The Left Testicle Indicate?

default
Posted on Wed, 18 Oct 2017
Question: I have a sore on the left side of my testical. The skin is very tender and swollen, the skin is very hard. The area is about 2" in diameter . Ibuprofen has lightened the pain but just barely this started last Wednesday. I am married and have been exclusively with my her for over 14 years.

I had jock itch the week before. Thinking maybe the skin was irritated and became infected
