Due to trauma,testis can get injured.In rupture,there will be collection of blood in the scrotum and it looks enlarged.
Some amount of inflammation might have occured due to trauma.So,you are having fever and pain.
Please take anti inflammatory drug and good antibiotic like Cefpodoxime to prevent any infection.
Please get a Colour doppler of scrotum for correct diagnosis.
Wish you good health
