If you have already skipped the blue ball (epididymal hypertension) situation we can discuss more of another issue.
1.     Epididymitis - caused due to inflammation due to injury or infection.
2.     Hydrocele - if you have swelling you can think of this, need to ultrasound scrotum to rule out.
3.     Hernia - if you have swelling.
4.     Kidney stones - can also cause pain, usually, the pain will be from the abdomen to scrotum.
5.     Infections - prostate infection, hygiene issue, use of public toilets and any STD can be a cause.
6.     Diabetic neuropathy - normal blood sugar will help you diagnose diabetes, neuropathy is one of the early complications of diabetes 7.     Any previous surgical procedure.
8.      Urinary tract infection (UTI).
9.     Benign or malignant lesion.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

HI, I get occasional pain in the right side just about half to 1 inch above form where the penis connects to the body. sometimes the pain radiates to the left testicles. Sometimes I do not wear any underwear but during this pain i like something holding the balls up. Over a period of time I have been monitoring and notice that having sex esp with good foreplay creating a hard erection, the pain almost goes away instantly. Mastrubation does not help much as the intensity is not the same. In short frequent good sex seems to be the solution (by frequent I mean 1 to 2 times a week at min) but reality is there are some times I go without for 3-4 weeks as my partner is not all fired up often enough on sex. Could you pls advise on what my prob could be and what I could do to avoid this. This is a prob that I am encountering in the past year or so - I am 45yr. Thanks
