I have a problem with my right testicle. Any suggestions ?

sir I am a male 21 years. I have a problem with my right testicle. It started about 5 years back. actually I used to play football by making balance with one feet and playing by right feet only to hold the ball in air for longer time, so after some time due to continuous contraction and relaxation of muscles of lower abdominal part and abdomen -foot joint, it started little swelling and pain around that area. finally i left playing and pain also became normal. Last year i started going for horse riding and it again started paining heavily along with a kind of knot over my right testicle (that knot is still there and whenever i press it it s really painful and it seems that the knot is still growing bigger) and sometimes it used to swell also very badly along with serve pain. I left going for horse riding but pain is still persisting sometimes along with swelling. Last year i had also gone ultrasound but there were no symptoms of hernia . any suggestions. I will really be thankful to you sir.

welcome to HealthcareMagic
The knot or a swelling near the testes since it is painful it is in all probability a Varicocele.Please get examined by a surgeon who will check it and if it is varicocele will prescribe some antibiotic for few days or if it is necessary he may even advise you surgery for it.Varicocele needs treatment because it is one of the causes of male infertility in later life if it is not treated but when treated everything becomes fine and will not bother you through out life.
