Have pain in left testicle effecting erection. What to do?

Hi, during a routine check of my testicles which I tend to do every so often, I felt a pain in the left testicle as though I had squeezed it too hard. I didn t think anything of it at the time, however I have had an occasional dull ache in the left testicle ever since. The ache only seems to come when I shift a certain way, or if it suddenly impacts against something. It has also affected my ability to achieve or maintain an erection - presumably because stimulation tends to bump it. Help!

Thanks for your query.Based on the facts that you have posted it appears that you have pain in left testicleand difficulty in getting erection.

The pain in testicle may be due to Varicocele which is common on left side.

However this can be confirmed only on clinical examination.

As regards difficulty in getting erection it may be due to pain that you have in testicle or may be due to anxiety,

Consult qualified Urologist to confirm the diagnosis.and further treatment.
