Hi,
Thanks four your query to XXXXXXX

The possibilities are
1. Varicocele- engorged veins of the testes.
2. Hernia- descent of the stomach contents into the scrotum.
3. Hydrocele- Fluid collection around the testes.
4. Twist of the spermatic cord ( in which case the pain will be very severe and hence unlikely).
5. Last but not the least - testicular tumour.

You need focused history, physical examination, and possibly ultrasound scan of the abdomen and testes.
The treatment will vary based on the cause found.
Till that time, you can use little tight underwear to support the scrotum.
Hope this helps, kindly get back for doubts if any.

Regards
DR GS

Hello, I'm an 80 year old man but this has been going on as long as I can remember. Sometimes, but not always, when I'm standing at the toilet waiting to urinate, as soon as the urine starts to flow, or a split second before, I feel a rush of warmth in my toes, both feet. I've looked for this on the web and a few people report it but apparently most men don't have this experience and don't know about it. I had surgery for hernia / hydrocele / undescended testicle when I was about 14 in case that has anything to do with it.
