Suggest treatment for testicular pain

my husband started having right testicular pain last night after doing some heavy lifting yesterday(working on his moms car). Now today he is in serious pain to the touch, while walking and it seems as if the testical has dropped an inch and is swollen. I tried to tell him he nneded to go to the ER. Correct?

General Surgeon 's  Response
Hi,

It could be infection and inflammation of testis or testicular torsion. Colour doppler of the scrotum will confirm the diagnosis. You should consult a surgeon / urologist and get investigated. It is an emergency.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Hari Charan Perigela, General Surgeon
