Brief Answer: Can be due to nerve related cause. Detailed Answer: Hello, Thanks for trusting us with your health concern. The intermittent pulsatile sensation in the testicle with no other symptoms can be a physiological variation and a harmless finding but the causes that need to be ruled out are- nerve impingement or pudendal nerve inflammation and piriformis syndrome. Avoid activities like prolonged sitting jogging bicycle riding etc and see if the sensation improves. It is best to consult a neurologist for examination and related investigations in case the pulsation persists. Please feel free to discuss further. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have. Wishing you good health. Regards. Dr. Rakhi Tayal.
