Pain in testicle, feels irritated, no pain, stomach and prostate hurts. Looking for treatment

Hi, I have had some pain on my left testicle for 4 weeks and i wonder what it is. It doesn’t hurt too badly but enough get me irritated. Everything looks normal and the left testicle isn’t any bigger than the other. Sometimes it even hurts on the low and left side of my stomach and sometimes on the left side of the prostate .

Do you have any burning sensation in the urine as well?

There are certain diagnostic possibilities based on the symptoms you have described:
1. epididymo-orchitis (inflammation of the testis and the cord) - this can lead to the discomforting pain your are describing. It is usually associated with burning sensation in the urine. This problem can be treated by a course of antibiotics.
2. stone in the urinary system - a small stone can lead to pain in the testicles and the lower part of the stomach
3. a small nodule in the testis, which is not apparent on palpation - you will need to get an ultrasound for it.

I would suggest that you consult a doctor and have him examine you, following which you can have an ultrasound of the abdomen and testis.
Hopefully it is not something serious.

My partner has been diagnosed with sciatica, but is worried because the shooting pain comes from his left testicle. Our doctor has checked his testicles and prostate and given him the all clear for anything more sinister and prescribed anti-inflammatories. The pain is worsening and has been a constant for 2 months now. Our doctor said the cause was a muscle strain, but when I read up on sciatica online most of the underlying causes seem to stem from spinal column issues - herniated disc, spinal stenosis. Should our doctor be looking more thoroughly into underlying cause just now? My partner is in increasing pain and we are both worried. Thanks

ever since i was 15, i have had pain when i urinate. There has never been discharge or anything strange of that nature. As I understand it, urine is supposed to be healthiest when clear, but the pain is the worst when the urine is clear. Over the years, when I have ejaculated, it would occasionally hurt. Sometimes, usually related to strain or constipation , my whole groin area aches, with my penis sometimes erected from the pressure. This may be completely unrelated, but I m not sure. The main thing is that I was a virgin when this started. I went to a urologist but received no std test because of my virginity . I was told it was an incurable thing that would do no harm to me or my future spouse, only pain for me when i urinate. I was given a UTI medication which only seemed to solve the issue for a while. As I have researched since, I believe I may have Epididymitus or Orchitis , and I also read differing accounts on the contagiousness of such things. Is there a set way I can narrow the possibilities down without having to spend more money if not needed?

Sometimes i feel like a pin prick when glans is touched, I ve consulted with urologist but Dr. told that no need to worry about that. But it causing impotent to some extent due to the pain, i want to remove it, what i ll do??

My son was diagnosed with orchitis or epididymitis. My problem is that he always gets this immediately following an ingrown toenail infection. Also, his left side lower abdomen hurts more than his left testicle. He was given antibiotic injections, one each day for three days, and 5 days of azithromycin. This is the fourth time he has had this and it get worse each time. He is 12 years old. The urologist said yesterday that this just happens sometimes. What does that even mean??? He is finished with the antibiotics and seems a little better, but not like he usually is after the antibiotics.
